Fiber Optics Technicians

Work Environment

Fiber optics technicians who work as assemblers spend most of their time sitting at a bench. Technicians who work as installers usually work out in the field installing fiber beneath the ground. There is little physical exertion required because machinery is used to dig the trenches. Fiber optics technicians spend part of their time outside repairing fiber, and part of their time in a van preparing the fibers for installation. They may also install fiber cables in buildings; this will require some climbing of ladders and working beneath floorboards.
