Certified IPC Specialist Certification
course is designed to help electronic manufacturers achieve
the highest quality, productivity, and cost-effective production
by ensuring that personnel can correctly apply the acceptability
criteria of the IPC-A-610 "Acceptability of Electronic Assemblies" whilst performing visual inspection of PCB's.
The objective of this programme is to improve individual discrimination
skills, i.e. to improve accuracy of discrimination between
an 'acceptable' or 'defect' electronic assembly per the IPC-A-610
series. The programme will also teach individuals to consistently
and correctly apply the accept / defect criteria. The candidates
will be evaluated on their knowledge of the IPC-A-610 material
This certification will demonstrate your commitment to customer requirements and greatly assists any company dedicated to ISO or other quality assurance initiatives. Upon satisfactory course completion participants will receive IPC certification, which is valid for 2 years. This training and certification has immediate recognition and value throughout the electronics industry.
The Certified IPC Specialist Training is "modularised", meaning that training can be tailored to meet the requirements of individual organisations. Candidates must take the first two modules, and after this, a selection of the modules applicable for the candidate and your company requirements can be made. Certification to a specific technology will require successful completion of several modules. Contact ATEK for further details.
