In a continuing effort to assist our employees with education and training, Mon Valley Integration would like to congratulate Brian Shelosky on completing a week long Fiber Optics training course in Virginia Beach with the Electronics Technicians Association (ETA). The course consisted of hands on labs and bookwork. The labs had students splicing fiber mechanically, placing various styles of connectors onto strands of multi and single mode fiber, splcing fiber by machine, using a fusion splicer, and testing all of their connections with various scopes and equipment, including an Optical Time Delay Refractometer (OTDR). Bookwork led students through the history of fiber optic connections, illustrating how the industry came to be and where its headed. Brian now joins several of our other employees as an ETA Certified Fiber Optics Technician/Installer. Find out what our fiber optics installation department can do for you here.
