OSP101: Introduction to Outside Plant Design

Participate in interactive scenario-based online learning in this six-hour introductory
course. Get an overview of outside plant (OSP) design consideration for route selection,
underground and direct-buried pathways and aerial support structures for an identified
aerial pathway. In addition, the course explores industry-recognized cables for cabling
systems, using codes and standards, and right-of-way requirements.

Course Objectives
+ List basic types of OSP pathways and spaces
+ List types of cable based on media construction for an application
+ Describe various cabling topologies
+ Identify general requirements of bonding and grounding (earthing)
and electrical protection for outside plant
+ Determine specifications for underground pathways and spaces
+ Explain types of trenching methods
+ Identify considerations for aerial support structures
+ Identify requirements for acquiring public or private right-of-way

End of Course Assessment

The OSP101 course includes a timed comprehensive assessment, consisting
of 30 questions to be completed within 45 minutes. Students may take the
assessment as many times as needed to master the content. A score of 75
percent or higher must be achieved to satisfy course completion and earn 6 CECs.

OSP102: Applied Outside Plant Design

Gain application-based knowledge of all aspects of the outside plant (OSP)
design process.
This five-day course covers elements common to all OSP projects,
along with design techniques for underground, direct-buried and aerial cable plant
applications. Students will have the opportunity to apply what they have learned
through a series of design scenarios such as route design, media selection, planning
and cost estimation.

Course Objectives
+ Identify the components of an OSP infrastructure
+ Identify OSP pathways and spaces
+ Describe effective route designs for outside plants
+ Describe media solutions
+ Describe planning requirements for initial OSP design
+ Identify the primary codes and standards associated with outside plant
cable installation
+ Identify bonding and grounding requirements associated with OSP installation
+ Locate requirements in project documentation, including an RFQ, scope of work
and other information typically established during a site and/or field survey
+ Identify underground, direct-buried and aerial pathways of a route
+ Describe the three primary cabling topologies and hybrid topologies
+ Identify special design considerations
+ Identify the minimum components of a maintenance plan
+ Identify the information that is needed to provide a cost estimate
End of Course Assessment
Students work together throughout the course to complete a group project, allowing
immediate use of new knowledge and skills learned in the classroom.

OSP101 and completion of the ICT Design Fundamentals Program is recommended
prior to attending this class. BICSI also strongly recommends that students read the
OSPDRM, 6th edition, and any errata.
