Fiber Optic Splicing and Connector Module

The Fiber Optic Connector and Splicing Module is a supplemental curriculum from Industrial Fiber Optics. It is written and designed to augment our best industry selling Fiber Optic Demonstration System training product. This new module is an ideal hands-on training curriculum for industrial technology and vocational education studies in two of the most sought-after industry technical skills today-splicing a fiber optic cable and doing field installations of fiber optic connectors.

Although this module was written as a supplemental curriculum for the Fiber Optic Demonstration System, it also can be used as a stand-alone instructional package. The module is fully compatible with both the plastic and glass versions of the Fiber Optic Demonstration System. (In addition, this module is also compatible with a product manufactured for Scientific Laser Connection, which it referred to as "Module 2".)
