Training & Certification

CLASSROOM BASED COURSE:  Fiber SenSys offers Fiber Defender® product line training every other month at our headquarters in Hillsboro, Oregon. From the basics of fiber optics to complete system installation for our FD300 and FD500 Series Alarm Processing Units (APUs), this class provides certification credentials for system integrators. In addition to our standard Fiber Defender Certification classroom course, FSI can tailor a class to your company's specific security needs at our location or yours.

ONLINE CERTIFICATION: To ensure proper installation, tuning, and calibration requirements for the FD322 low-cost solution, the FD322 Online Training Module facilitates certified installer status without the need to travel to the factory in Oregon. The online testing module consists of six modules; each with a video and a short quiz. Upon successful completion of each module, you will be able to download and print your Certification Certificate.
