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

IPC/WHMA-A-620 is the first industry consensus standard for cable and wire harness fabrication and installation. Classes of products are defined and include criteria for Target, Acceptable, Process Indicator and Defect conditions to support the collection of visual quality acceptability requirements for each class. These criteria are supported by full-colour illustrations. After your trainers are certified to this specification, they will be qualified to teach and certify individuals in the IPC/WHMA-A-620 standard.
