   IPC-A-610 Certified IPC Specialist Certification

This 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.

Course Objective:
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 through open-book course assessments.

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.
