Training is an important part of Amphenol Fiber Systems International’s (AFSI) service to its customers. In addition to regularly scheduled training, AFSI is pleased to offer the following technical course:

TFOCA-II® Fiber Optic Training

The AFSI TFOCA-II® training course is designed for persons who are involved in the installation, testing, troubleshooting or maintenance of fiber optic, deployable, land tactical interconnect systems. Focusing on the AFSI developed 4-channel hermaphroditic TFOCA-II® connectors, this class is ideal for military and civilian field personnel responsible for the maintenance and installation of tactical fiber optic networks.

Fiber Systems Fiber Optic Training

Designed, developed and delivered by fiber optic and TFOCA-II® specialists, AFSI offers multiple types of TFOCA-II®training, which can be customized depending upon customer requirements.

On-site Training:

AFSI offers training at our location in Allen, Texas according to your schedule. Our expert trainers provide classroom instruction in a well-equipped, modern training facility. Hands-on lab activities support the classroom instruction and allow one-on-one interaction and guidance from the instructor.

Mobile Training:

AFSI also provides this training at customer-specified locations for up to eight students. We can customize our training for larger class sizes. Mobile training minimizes travel for the class participants and reduces costs. In addition, students may learn in their own environment, allowing them to apply the training more quickly. AFSI offers flexible scheduling and can perform the training during normal business hours or “after hours.”
