The RWM Online fiber optic training course is the most comprehensive online fiber optic training course you will ever take available online. Passing the final exam means that you have passed the written requirements for certification.

The 18  modules use state of the art multimedia (flash player) consisting of videos,  interactions, and learning exercises. Preview Module 11, Optical Principles & Properties of Light.

Dr. Sally Ride, the first American woman NASA astronaut in space, introduces all the modules with incredible images from the Space shuttle.

A portion of the course fee goes to the Dr. Sally Ride foundation to encourage students in math and science.

The online fiber optic course could be completed in 60 hours, however after the initial login, it will be active for up to 12 months.  Many of the Fiber Optic Modules are very time consuming especially the ones with demos on connectorizing, splicing and the OTDR.

Each module has review questions. A mid-term and a final exam is given after completion of all the modules. A technical advisor is assigned to each enrolled student.

After successful completion of the course, a Certified Professional Fiber Optics Installer (CPFOI) Certification document and exam results is sent to the student and Fiber Optic International.
