The EXFO broadband certification (EBC) program
The EBC program is designed for technicians, engineers, and managers across the USA and Canada who are involved in the installation, testing and maintenance of fiber-optic components and passive optical networks (PON). The program covers various types of architectures and components used in FTTH networks, and how to test them. Participants are trained on best practices and on the use of EXFO solutions.
Ensure the work is done right the first time from test to reporting, increase efficiency, learn useful tips when troubleshooting in the field.
Learn fundamental aspects of fiber optics, including different types of architectures and components for FTTH.
Get trained on the optimal use of EXFO’s key test solutions for broadband access.
For all levels
Training sessions are available for technicians of any skill/experience level.
Access training content anytime, anywhere, at your own pace, free of charge.
Get certified upon program completion.
Discover our program modules
Dive into training modules that cover the foundation for any technical staff member handling and testing fiber-optics. For evaluation toward certification, there are 5 quizzes and a final exam.
PON Technologies Fundamentals
Get an overview of architectures and components used in FTTH networks. Understand how GPON and XGSPON networks are engineered and get exposed to test methods involved in broadband access optical networks including it’s fiber plant and services at the customer location.
Discover the world of optical fiber: its essence, the importance of attenuation, reflection mechanics, and diverse fiber types.
Fiber inspection and cleaning
Ensure optimal network performance and accurate testing. Learn how to detect damaged/dirty connectors, adopt cleaning techniques, understand fiber inspection scopes, and grasp inspection basics.
Optical time-domain reflectometers (OTDR)
At the end of this session attendees will have an overall understanding of OTDR setups to run tests successfully.
Master reporting essentials (e.g., project settings, OTDR traces, result analysis) and advanced techniques to generate closeout reports that meet customer expectations.
