The Fiber Optic Technicians Manual Published In Spanish
The Fiber Optic Association's textbook, The Fiber Optic Technicians Manual, has been translated into Spanish and published by Thomson Delmar Learning. Printing the first fiber optic textbook in Spanish will assist in the education of fiber optic technicians and promote the use of fiber optics in Spanish -speaking countries, one of the goals of The Fiber Optic Association, the non -profit professional society of fiber optics.
The Fiber Optic Technicians Manual is used by many schools around the world to teach fiber optics, including over 150 FOA -approved training facilities. While most technicians working with fiber optics use English as a technical language, many instructors have told us that the book would be more useful for training technicians if it were available translated into local languages, especially Spanish due to the growing market for fiber optics in Latin and South America.
The FOA, working with publisher Delmar Thomson Learning and fiber optic instructor Francisco Castro Cabrera of Mexico City has produced the first textbook for fiber optics in Spanish. Translations were done by Francisco Castro with review by Patrick Sullivan who teaches fiber optics in Spain. Francisco Castro is also starting up a new FOA chapter in Mexico to service Spanish -speaking countries.
Now The FOA has its textbook in Spanish, we have also translated our CFOT certification exams and will have other FOA materials available in Spanish shortly. This book will greatly facilitate the training of fiber optic technicians in Spanish -speaking countries, one of the fastest growing markets for fiber optics.
