    Well, first of all, the procedure they handed you is typical cut-and-paste crap. The Fluke instrument they want you to use went out of production in 2005, and the ITC-IV meter is for copper only, not fiber. I wish you good luck.

    You can rent testers. I use the Fluke DTX1800 there is also the newer DSX5000. They cost about $20,000 new. You are looking for something that will certify the cable to EIA/TIA standards and produce a report that you can submit to the client. These both have optional modules for testing fiber as well. If you have never done fiber work you might want to hire someone to do it.

    One other thing, The omniscanner 2 is no longer supported. You won't be able to get one that has current calibration, This would render it about as useful as a dirty rock for cable certification.

    The world is round, you will get there no matter what path you take.
