Classroom and Training Dates

Fiber Optics, Level I The Electrical Training ALLIANCE has partnered with the Fiber Optic Association (FOA) and Corning Optical Communications to bring the latest in fiber optic technology and certification to the organized electrical industry. This partnership and the resulting training materials expand the reach of quality optical fiber training and certification to every JATC and AJATC. This course is to be used in concert with the FOA online resources which will help the student to attain their CFOT® certification. Based on the FOA Reference Guide to Fiber Optics, the new version of the Reference Guide to Fiber Optics has been enhanced to better reflect the need for fiber optic training required by our JATCs and AJATCs. Completion of the course will give the student a comprehensive knowledge of optical fiber, connecting hardware, testing and fiber optic network design. With added hands-on training, completion of the course can lead to sitting for the Certified Fiber Optic Technician (CFOT) exam - the FOA certification for general fiber optics applications. Approx.  Four classes.

Paging Systems, Level I Paging systems, background music, and PA systems are evident almost everywhere. This course is intended to provide a basic understanding of these systems, their fundamental components, and how these systems work, and then it explores some of the specific applications of the systems. It begins with lessons on understanding the components associated with distributed sound systems/ paging systems and their functions. Next, it explains the differences between a constant voltage system and a self-amplified system. Single-zone and multi-zone paging systems will also be examined. One of the prime considerations in any sound system design is an efficient power transfer between the amplifier and the associated speakers. There is a lesson designed to explain the two power transfer methods, their advantages and disadvantages. Other topics discussed in this course are designing and layouts and sound masking systems

You will need a 2017 code book. We can order you one for $85.00 dollars. Approx.  Three classes.

Preparing for Leadership: Personal Qualities, Level 1

This is the first in a series of courses which will lay the foundation for you to become a leader in the organized electrical industry. This course, Personal Qualities, explores the traits that each member of a team should possess. These qualities will help to facilitate the harmonious coordination between the team's many parts. Approx.  Five classes.

Voice-Data-Video: Applications and Installation, Level I

This course offers an in-depth overview of copper and fiber optic cabling used for voice-data-video (VDV) applications in the electrical industry. The course introduces important concepts such as VDV safety as well as an overview of the VDV industry. The course then introduces tools used in the VDV industry, copper and fiber cabling systems, VDV prints, cabling standards and NEC requirements, and copper and fiber optic installation and testing methods. Approx.  Five classes.

Access Control, Level I This course will introduce fundamental concepts for access control systems. Topics presented include cards, codes, and biometrics, door hardware, control panels, access control terminology, and basic design concepts. Approx.  Three classes.
