The Fiber Optic Association has developed curriculum guidelines for training course approval and only approves schools or training organizations meeting our standards. Schools or training organizations which offer training which meets FOA standards are listed on this website and are authorized to offer FOA certifications.
Note: ONLY schools which are listed here are FOA-Approved and authorized to offer FOA certifications. Schools listed here are required to offer FOA certifications to all students. If you have any questions regarding a school's status with the FOA, contact the FOA staff.
The curriculum currently in use is the C-Tech Telecommunications, Copper, and Fiber Optic Network Cabling Programs. We have been providing this training and certification to our correctional students for the past several years. The FOA materials would be used to enrich and enhance that training while providing the FOA certification of completion certifications to the students pending our programs becoming fully authorized CFOT / CPCT certification providers with the Southern New Mexico Correctional Facility (the facility I am at) being the first and the other state facilities following instructor training and certification and FOA approvals.
Note:ONLY those schools which are listed on the FOA website are FOA-Approved and authorized to offer FOA certifications. Schools listed here are required to offer FOA certifications to students. If you have any questions regarding a school's status with the FOA, contact the FOA staff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The listings on this page represent the most recent information available to the FOA. Contact the individual school for verification.
