CLi™ Certification Program

As the first telecommunications company to offer a lifetime warranty* on end-to-end fiber optic systems, AFL partners with system integrators that possess the same quality of workmanship as we do. We are continually building a network of Certified Link Installers (CLi™) that design and install AFL systems.

As a Certified Link Installer, you will be confident in designing and installing an AFL system that will fit the needs of your customers, as well as give them the peace of mind that a lifetime warranty offers. This, coupled with AFL’s excellent technical support, will differentiate you from your competition.

AFL offers you, our CLi partner, extensive hands-on training that will help you understand the products we manufacture better, as well as develop your fiber optic knowledge and installation practices. After the training is complete, you will have all the necessary tools to design and install a completely warranted AFL system. A certificate will be issued to each participant documenting your completion of the training course and certification as a CLi. The CLi host company will also be awarded a certificate that identifies it as an AFL CLi partner.

AFL's Certified Link Installers are a very important piece of the lifetime warranty we offer. We carefully select partners that are as stringent about quality workmanship as we are at AFL. As an AFL Certified Link Installer, you can separate yourself from the competition by offering a great product with the best warranty in the industry.
