IPC 620 logo    IPC/WHMA-A-620 Certified IPC Specialist Certification

This training provides a detailed overview of the IPC/WHMA-A-620 "Requirements and Acceptance for Cable and Harness Assemblies". The standard describes the acceptability criteria for crimped, mechanically secured and soldered interconnections and the corresponding lacing/restraining criteria associated with cable and harness assemblies. Most electrical/electronic assemblies and products get connected, one way or another, to something else via a cable or wire harness of some sort, or include internal connections and cabling. Faulty cables can be amongst the hardest items to diagnose, especially as many cable harnesses are used in adverse environments such as automotive or aerospace. You don't want your products to fail due to a fault in a wire harness.

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' cable assembly per the IPC/WHMA-A-620 criteria. 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/WHMA-A-620 material through open-book course assessments.

Benefits:
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.

Course Modules
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 module, and after this, a selection of the modules applicable for the candidate and your company requirements can be made.
