General Information on PEARSON TECHNOLOGIES' Training
PEARSON TECHNOLOGIES' training programs are designed for groups of 6 or more. In most cases, we deliver training at a client's site. Occasionally, we deliver programs at a hotel conference room near the client's site or in the area of Kennesaw or Woodstock, Georgia.
For most programs, PEARSON TECHNOLOGIES provides a text and a book of the PowerPoint slides used in the program. These become useful references.
For installation programs, PEARSON TECHNOLOGIES provides all materials, supplies, and equipment. For some presentations, we use client's equipment. In some cases, we train with the products requested by the client.
We deliver installation programs with or without certification by the Fiber Optic Association (FOA). Standard programs can lead to the following certifications: CFOT, CFOS/C, CFOS/T, CFOS/S. Custom programs can lead to other FOA certifications.
For installation programs, the texts provided are Professional Fiber Optic Installation, v.10, PowerPoint Slides for Professional Fiber Optic Installation, v.10, and Certification and Troubleshooting Fiber Optic Networks.
For design programs, the texts provided are: Mastering Fiber Optic Network Design, Mastering Fiber Optic Network Design: Presentation Slides. In addition, we provide 32 Excel spreadsheets for use in the hands-on design activities and the design activities after the program.
