PLI-20-020 nbn™ Fiber optic splicing and joint enclosure construction

This course is designed for individuals with minimal experience and ensures that learning outcomes can be applied immediately to field activities using our advanced real-world hands-on learning environments.

On completion, learners will have the confidence to build common network attributes including all-optical joint enclosures used within the nbn™ optical architectures (TFN,DFN and LFN) as well as splicing ribbon and stranded optical cable types.
