Fiber-technology association

Fiber-technology association

The Fiber Optic Association Inc., in Boston, has been formed as a professional association for people working in all areas of fiber optics technology. Initially, it will develop training and certification programs for fiber optics. Within the fiber optics industry, there are organizations of companies that have been instrumental in developing standards for fiber-optic components and testing, but there has not been an organization for individuals who are working in the industry. Principals include Jim Hayes, director of Fiber U and president of Fotec Inc.; Elias Awad of Wentworth Institute of Technology; Eric Pearson of Pearson Technologies; Paul Rosenberg of Electrical Contractor magazine and the National Electrical Contractors Association, and John Highhouse of Lincoln Trail College.
