MTP-MPO training facility

Who are courses for?

Our courses provide assistance, information and training for contractors, installers, engineers and end users on the termination of fibre optic cables and on the selection and application of fibre optic components and equipment.

Tech Optics trains many customers who are planning their own in-house termination capability, or who want to move on to new types of connectors or termination methods - now including MTP/MPO. We also run courses on terminating harsh environment connectors to military tactical cables, which requires a stronger skill set and deeper knowledge base than that required for terminating standard commercial connectors.


Why train with us?

  • Tech Optics will tailor any course to meet your specific needs, from a basic introductory course to training for a complex or confidential installation/network
  • All equipment and consumables provided
  • Maximum of six attendees per course per day
  • Satisfied participants include Royal Mail, BAE Systems and Amphenol


Course location

Courses can be held either at our facilities in Tonbridge, Kent or at a customer's own premises.


What do courses cover?

We provide fully tailored courses at varying levels that can cover a wide variety of topics, including fibre technology, cable design and installation, connector termination, splicing and test methods. Our expertise in fibre optic cable assembly design ensures you will use the correct product for the installation and at the right price!

We train in terminating fibre optic cables with a wide range of connectors, both singlemode and multimode. Our instructors emphasise the practical aspects of the termination process.

Note: For the singlemode course, you must either have been working with multimode fibres or attended our multimode course.


Introductory course

For those just starting to use fibre optic technology, or for companies with additional staff training needs, we offer one-day courses in Tonbridge, Kent. These courses are specifically designed to meet the requirements of the installer with a practical insight to the technology and 'hands-on' training for terminating, splicing and testing.


Singlemode course

Our advanced courses on singlemode fibre optic technology include interferometry, understanding the end-face geometry of the fibre, how the interferometer works and how it is used as a tool. Machine polishing of singlemode fibres is necessary to get the process optimised for maximum fibre performance, high optical return loss, and making the fibre geometry compliant to IEC standards.


MTP/MPO training

Tech Optics is now offering MTP/MPO training in our dedicated new training facility which is fully equipped with leading-edge termination and inspection equipment, including a Domaille polishing machine and a Norland AIM2020 interferometer.

Our US Conec-trained engineers can create a course to meet your needs, including topics such as:

  • Fibre optic theory
  • Cable design and installation
  • MTP/MPO termination
  • Inspection and test
  • Maintenance


Harsh environment courses

Our courses on harsh environment applications can be tailored to meet your requirements, covering a wide range of connectors and cables: M38999 / M29504, M28876, ARINC 801, HA / JN1055 (JN1008 cable), TFOCA II, TFOCA III, MFM, HMA and many others.
