Fiber Splicing Services and Training Program

Conexon’s innovative splicing business for fiber network construction is a turnkey service option for electric cooperatives that includes job- and project-ready professionals and a hands-on certification course to improve training.

The full-service splicing business and affiliated training program were developed to create new opportunities for fiber network construction professionals and ensure a ready supply of best-practice oriented professionals for the ever-increasing number of rural fiber broadband projects.

Conexon’s education program is an opportunity to train new hires to Conexon standards with a uniform, safety- and quality-oriented approach to methodology and technique.

This unique approach ensures quality assurance and cost management – Conexon splicers are expertly educated to work efficiently and to the highest standards in the industry to keep your project on schedule and on budget.

Splicers who train at the Conexon Construct splicing school will focus on Conexon’s core distributed tap architecture methodology, learning and practicing the skills needed for effective, safe and efficient tap splicing during the two-week certification course. Once training is complete, splicers are assigned to a Conexon job build and equipped with the tools needed to begin splicing paths on FTTH projects across rural America.

"It has been a journey to make the vision of Conexon Construct a reality. Training our own splicing crews puts us in control of our projects and allows us to maintain the highest quality of work. With Construct, Conexon is helping to create solid, safe jobs in rural markets and providing the hands-on education and experience necessary to excel at it."
