  • Basic theory
  • Fiber composition
  • Single-mode & multimode systems
  • Fiber characteristics
  • Step index & graded-index fibers
  • Plastic fibers
  • Fiber optic color coding
  • Loose buffered & tight-buffered cables
  • Distribution & breakout cables
  • Indoor & outdoor cables
  • Composite & hybrid cables
  • Connector types (SC,ST,LC,FC)
