We invite you to the fiber optic welding course, which is organized by ERGON. We provide professionalism in obtaining qualifications. We have been educating professionals for 25 years. The course emphasizes the importance of both theory and practice. The trainee will learn the preparation of fiber optic cables and their finishing, will learn how to use a fiber optic welder. Installations based on optical fibers are gaining more and more popularity. The most important activity of a fiber optic network installer is cleaning and removing insulation. Optical fiber is a transmission medium that transmits various information using light pulses. A fiber optic cable can consist of more than 100 fibers. When welding optical fibers, it is necessary to use proven devices that have a valid calibration certificate. This is a guarantee of high-quality service. In order to weld optical fibers, use a fiber optic splicer. We perform the activity by melting the ends of the fiber in an electric arc. The purpose of the final annealing of the weld is to eliminate stresses. The arc temperature is as high as 1000 degrees Celsius.

Fiber optic cables can be found, among others, in analog monitoring installations, LAN networks, and alarm systems. According to the law, each educational public building should contain fiber optic installations. It is very fashionable to use external enterprises that have professional equipment for welding optical fibers.

That is why fiber optic welding courses are so important. It is important that there are hands-on exercises when choosing the right training. The implementation of the fiber optic installation is divided into three stages:

  • laying the wires
  • provision of cabling
  • welding

The last stage generates the greatest costs. Welding optical fibers requires time, specific tools and welding precision. Thermal and mechanical welding is the most popular on the market. Both have their advantages and disadvantages. Every beginner welder should be familiar with the pros and cons of welding. The installer will perform the activity with a basic tool, i.e. a fiber cutter, cable cutters, dust-free wipes.

We require at least 18 years of age and at least basic education to enroll in the course. It should be emphasized that the demand for fiber optic welders is growing due to the involvement of telecommunications companies. After completing the course, you have the chance of stable employment and high salary. It is worth noting that the trainee receives a certificate documenting the completion of the training. Fiber welding technology is constantly evolving. The entire technology industry has been transformed by this.

We divide optical fibers into two types, ie single-mode and multi-mode. An optical fiber consists of three parts: the jacket, the core and the buffer.

We invite you to welding courses all over the country. It is also possible to organize closed training (we will reach the client). Our company has many years of experience and provides professionalism in the performance of services, as well as affordable prices.

The aim of the training of a fiber optic welder is to acquire professional knowledge both in practice and theory. The course is the best possible choice. The trainee will learn how an optical fiber welder works, learn about its operation, and learn how to prepare fiber optic cables.

Who is the course for?

  • for people looking for new qualifications
  • for companies from the telecommunications sector that outsource training of people
  • for cable TV employees

Training topics:

  • health and safety rules
  • types of fiber optic connectors
  • support for a fiber optic splicer
  • types of optical fibers
  • preparation of equipment for welding optical fibers

What is Fiber Welding?

Welding of optical fibers consists in connecting optical fibers with an electric arc. A permanent connection is then created.

The welder's experience, exceptional precision and diligence are important in the entire process. A fiber optic splicer is an important tool in the installer's work.

The technology is very advanced. Durability and quality depend on precision. The preparatory steps are important, i.e. applying a heat-shrinkable tube, removing the protective layer of the optical fiber, cleaning the optical fiber with a hygienic stick, cutting the optical fiber with a fiber optic knife, preparing the welding box, securing the cable with a heat-shrinkable tube. The preparatory steps are very important for the welding to be carried out professionally. It is important that the welder has manual skills. There are a few basic things to keep in mind

  • checking the supply of cable and fibers
  • arranging space for fibers and splices
  • removing the outer insulation
  • preparation of the cable for connection
  • conducting the measurement of optical path attenuation

Fiber optic technology is very popular all over the world. It is implemented by various telecommunications companies. Therefore, the demand for a fiber optic welder is growing. The ability to perform fiber optic splices is important in this profession. ERGON educates professional staff and perfectly understands the situation on the modern labor market. Optical fiber welder courses are conducted by experienced installers. It turns out that welding is not as complicated as it seems. After gaining the appropriate knowledge, everything should go according to the welder's wishes. Welding is secret knowledge, but specific and technical knowledge. Therefore, we invite you to trainings organized by ERGON. Training is theory and practice, and therefore all that is essential.

Before the course, it is worth answering some questions: is it worth becoming a fiber optic welder? Is it worth investing time? Is it worth learning a new profession?

If the answer to these questions is yes, then don't hesitate. Please find below contact details for the ERGON Center.
