FIBER OPTIC EDUCATION VIDEOS

FIBER OPTICS COMMUNICATIONS TRAINING VIDEOTAPES
 
 
 
Demonstration of "Planning and Installing a Local Fiber Link" - 
Sample shots from video

This series of training videotapes is designed for managers, engineers, technicians, and sales professionals who need a working knowledge of fiber optics.

This brand new, professionally produced series makes extensive use of animated computer graphics, live demonstrations, and sample equipment. The emphasis is on practical information which the viewer can immediately apply in their work. The power of video compresses the equivalent of several hours of classroom instruction into each tape. The convenience of video allows the employee to view the tape as many times as necessary to become comfortable with the concepts. A question/answer workbook is provided with the tapes to allow the student to test his or her progress.
