TelecomTRAIN Certification Exam


TelecomTRAIN is an FOA-approved school.

In order to get FOA  Certified Fiber Optic Technician (CFOT) remotely, you would need to have the following materials available to you. Generally this certification would be available to you if you are already a hands-on fiber technician and have your own tools.

There would be an additional day and cost associated with completing gaining the FOA CFOT certification. Please inquire if you are interested.
