September 11, 2001 Cable U is offering a free online self-study course on fiber optic testing using optical time domain reflectometers (OTDRs). The course can be found at www.cableu.net.

The course is one of a series of free virtual courses developed by Cable U, based in Medford, Mass. The courses are designed to show fiber installation and testing procedures in a step-by-step fashion using Web-based training.

The fiber optic testing course covers how to test fiber optic cables using OTDRs. OTDR testing methods are more complicated than testing with sources and meters and few installers are familiar with the instruments. The course will show students how to set up and use the instrument and interpret fiber traces captured by the OTDR.

The Cable U Web site offers free online training in fiber optics and communications wiring as well as technical information on cabling technology, standards, installation and testing. For more information, contact FOTEC, the fiber optic test equipment company, at 1-800-537-8254. The company can be reached at [email protected].
