This course provides the practical understanding and skills required to properly design, install, and maintain fiber optics systems in petrochemical environments such as offshore drilling, pipeline, refineries, and process plants and other industrial plant processes. Students will use the latest fiber optic technology and equipment to learn how to splice, connectorize, test, and troubleshoot petrochemical based harsh environment optical fiber networks in order to increase efficiency, reliability, and on-the-job safety requirements as well as reduce overall production cost and facilities downtime. Course lectures must be taken online.
Upon successful completion of the required on-line lectures and exams, the student will then attend the TR-OGP Hands-on training sessions scheduled. The hands-on training session is required to complete the Fiber Optics for Petrochem Certification.
