Understanding the 4 circuit levels and the techniques concerning cutting, stripping and crimping electrical wire.
Learning the advantages and proper use of the latest electrical wire termination tools for cutting, stripping and crimping electrical connectors on copper and aluminum wire.
Using professional grade electrical wire termination tools to complete lab activities in cutting, stripping and crimping electrical connectors on Series and Service Level wire sizes.
- Fishing Conduits and Raceways – This certification covers the process of fishing raceways in preparation for pulling the wire into the conduit or through the intended pathway. Topics include; manual fishing methods using fish tapes, fish poles and fish sticks as well as using power fishing equipment for raceways that are too long for manual methods. This is the first step in preparing for pulling wire through conduit and includes the accessories (mandrels, wire brushes, etc.) used to check conduit and clean conduit prior to the cable pull.
- Cable Pulling – This certification outlines the process of manual and power cable pulling. Special emphasis on safety related to power cable pulling operations is detailed throughout the curriculum. Topics include identifying the components of a cable pulling system, calculating pull forces, sheave theory, capstan theory, cable puller setups, rope to wire connections, monitoring pulling force, cable feeding. An overview of pulling in cable tray and using cable tray rollers as well as pulling category rated LAN and fiber optic cable is also included.
- Learning the proper use of tools, testers and applicable standards for terminating and performing wire verification testing on copper communications cabling.
- Utilizing professional grade tools to learn the proper techniques for cutting, stripping and terminating twisted pair and coaxial cables within the EIA/TIA cabling standards.
- Completing a number of lab activities terminating and testing LAN network cabling according to the latest EIA/TIA LAN cabling standards as well as coaxial “F type” terminations.
- Learning the proper use of tools, testers and applicable standards for terminating and testing on fiber-optic communications cabling.
- Utilizing professional grade tools to learn the proper techniques for terminating optical fiber cables within the EIA/TIA cabling standards.
- Completing lab activities that include cutting, stripping and cleaning fiber optic cable as well as fusion splicing fiber optic cable and installing splice-on connectors.
- Learning to test and verify proper terminations using professional grade handheld test equipment including visual fault locators and optical light source/power meters.
