    We get involved in the relationship with specialized institutions

    AFOR conceived the SR 13558 standard approved by ASRO in 2014. AFOR is a member of the Technical Committee CT 138 Fiber Optics within ASRO and permanently communicates with ANCOM, MDRAP and MCSI.








Since its inception, AFOR had as a main purpose the growth of the professional quality of the specialists who work in this field. Because the the fiber optic junction trade was missing from the
professions list, finally made its way through under the name of JO Fiber Optic, code 742215, approved on 27th of November 2015. The training courses are organized in collaboration with Optikline, which is accredited by ANC.
