CFOT Income Outlook

After CFOT certification, students have marketable industry skills. Typical entry-level jobs are field technician, junior splicing technician, or cable prep technician. According to Chron.com, the average salary for new technicians (1-4 years of experience) averages from $30,000-$52,000 annually or $13-$25 per hour. Factors such as experience, city, and skills influence pay, according to Payscale.com.

Fiber technician jobs fall under the category electrical power-line installers and repairers. Positions are in the telecommunications, building equipment contractors, and utility system construction companies, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ (BLS’), the Occupational Outlook Handbook (OOH). It projects little to no change in job growth for fiber optic installers and repair technicians between 2020 and 2030 promising security and stability for the next decade.

What to Expect in a Career

New technicians typically begin as junior technicians doing prep or installation work. Fiber technicians go on to become fiber cable splicers, network engineers or telecommunications technicians. 

Taking the CFOT 4-day course is the first step to a career in fiber optics. Obtaining certification says a student met a standard of preparation, knowledge, and skill. Participants build on certification with on-the-job training to become technicians and move on to become splicers, network engineers, or telecommunications technicians.
