Congratulations to Andrew Mitchell!
We are delighted that our team member, Andrew Mitchell, has successfully renewed his Certified Fibre Optic Training (CFOT).
The CFOT Programme is the Fibre Optic Association’s (FOA) certification for general fibre optics and is chartered to promote professionalism in fibre optics through education, certification and standards. The FOA is the largest fibre optics institution in the world and its certification is internationally recognised.
The five-day CFOT training involved both theoretical and practical sessions with the key learning objectives including understanding fibre and cable construction best practices, understanding fibre modes and application, theory of light propagation through fibre, familiarity with outside plant equipment and accessories, proficiency in the use of fibre optic testing equipment and fibre optic restoration practices.
Hands-on sessions were utilised to splice and test fibre optic cables purchased by BELCO for installation as part of the Company’s outside plant infrastructure expansion.
Liberty President Wayne Caines said: “At Liberty we are committed to empowering our employees with opportunities for life-long learning and becoming a certified fibre optic technician is just one of these opportunities. I would like to offer Mr. Mitchell my congratulations. I know that he will put these skills to good use as our companies continue to evolve and embrace the latest technologies.”
