The Fiber Optic Connector and Splicing Module is a new and 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 curiculum for industrial technology and vocational education studies in two of the most sought after industry technical skills today--splicing a fiber optic cable and installing of fiber optic connectors in the field.
Although this module was written as a supplemental curriculum for the Fiber Optic Demonstration System, it also can be used as a standalone 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 is referred to as Module 2).
Each activity includes:
Advance reading assignments
Actual hands-on, step-by-step procedures for assembling components, then testing them for degree of technical performance. Discussions of applicability to real-world environments such as communications systems put the procedures in industry perspective.
Assessment of the strengths and shortcomings of various components as system requirements change
Worksheets/quizzes that test students' knowledge as well as their ability to apply that knowledge to conceptual situations
Homework asignments (using Internet or library resources)
The comprehensive Instructor's Manual that comes with the module also includes answers to quiz and worksheet questions and a description of replacement parts,. which are consumed or worn down in activities.
