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 Fiber Optic Training

AFSI’s 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 biconic termini and the AFSI developed TFOCA connector, this class is ideal for military field personnel responsible for the maintenance and installation of tactical fiber optic networks.

TFOCA fiber optic training

Designed, developed and delivered by fiber optic and TFOCA specialists, AFSI offers multiple types of TFOCA 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. Mobile training minimizes travel for the class and reduces costs. In addition, students 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.”
