Put your trust in KURSO's experience
Join us for a course in fibre optic welding, which is organised by KURSO. We provide professionalism in gaining your qualifications. We have been training professionals for more than 25 years. The course includes both theory and practice. The trainee will learn how to prepare fibre optic cables and join them (welding), and will learn how to operate a fibre optic welding machine.
Fibre optic-based installations are gaining in popularity
Fibre optic cable is a transmission medium that transmits various information by means of light pulses. A fibre optic cable can consist of more than 100 fibres. When welding fibre optics, you need to use proven equipment that has a valid calibration certificate. This guarantees a high-quality service. A fibre optic welding machine must be used to weld the fibres. This is done by melting the fibre ends in an electric arc. The purpose of the final heating of the weld is to eliminate tension. The arc temperature is as high as 1000°C. The most important step for the fibre optic network installer is to clean and remove the insulation.
Application of fibre optics
Fibre optic cables can be found in analogue surveillance installations, LAN networks and alarm systems, among others. By law, every educational public building should contain a fibre-optic installation. It is very fashionable to use external companies that use professional fibre optic welding equipment.
Training in fibre optic welding
Fibre optic welding requires knowledge, skill and precision, which is why qualification courses are so important to get into this profession. When choosing the right training, it is important that there are practical exercises. The implementation of a fibre optic installation is divided into three stages:
- cable routing,
- making wiring provisions,
- welding (joining).
The last stage generates the highest costs. Fibre optic welding requires time, specific tools and the precision of the welder. Thermal and mechanical welding are the most popular on the market. Both have their advantages and disadvantages. Any beginner welder should become familiar with them. The fitter will do the job properly with basic tools, i.e. a fibre-cutting guillotine, cable cutters and dust-free wipes.
What, after completing the training?
It should be noted that there is a growing demand for fibre welders due to the involvement of telecommunications companies.
After completing the course, you have the chance of stable employment and a satisfactory salary. It is worth noting that the trainee receives a certificate documenting the completion of the training. Fibre optic welding technology is developing all the time. The entire technology industry has been transformed by it.
Breakdown of fibre optics
Fibre optics are divided into two types, i.e. single-mode and multimode. An optical fibre consists of three parts: sheath, core and buffer.
Fiber optic welding training at KURSO
We invite you to welding courses all over the country. It is also possible to organize closed training (we will reach the client). Our company has many years of experience and provides professionalism in the performance of services, as well as affordable prices.
The purpose of training a fiber optic welder is to acquire professional knowledge both in practice and theory. The course is the best possible choice. The trainee will learn how an optical fiber welder works, learn about its operation, and learn how to prepare fiber optic cables.

- for companies in the telecommunications sector that outsource the training of people;
- for cable television employees'
We require you to be at least 18 years old and have at least a primary school education to enrol.
- health and safety rules,
- types of fibre optic connectors,
- operation of a fibre optic welding machine,
- optical fibre types,
- preparation of equipment for fibre optic welding.
Fibre optic splicing techniques - what should you know?
Fibre optic welding involves joining optical fibres together using an electric arc. A permanent connection is then created.
Important in the whole process is the experience of the welder, exceptional precision and care. The fibre optic welder is an important tool in the work of the installer.
Preparation for work
The technology is very advanced. Precision determines strength as well as quality. The preparatory steps are important, i.e. the application of the heat shrink tubing, removal of the protective layer of the optical fibre, cleaning of the optical fibre with a cotton bud, trimming of the optical fibre with a fibre optic knife, preparation of the welding box, protection of the cable with the heat shrink tubing. The preparatory steps are very important for the welding to be carried out professionally. It is important that the welder has manual skills. There are a few basic things to keep in mind
- checking the cable and fibre supply;
- determining the location of fibres and welds;
- stripping of external insulation;
- preparing the cable for splicing;
- carrying out an attenuation measurement of the optical path.
Increase in demand for fibre welders
Fibre optic technology is already attracting considerable interest worldwide. Various telecommunications companies are implementing it. The demand for fibre optic welders is therefore growing. The ability to perform fibre optic splices is important in this profession.
The KURSO centre trains professional staff and understands the situation in today's labour market very well. Courses for fibre optic welders are taught by experienced installers. That is why we invite you to the training courses organised by KURSO. Training is both theory and practice.
