Manufacturing training courses provide employees with the skills necessary to operate intricate machinery safely and complete complex processes efficiently. Not only are these technical courses vital for safe practices and knowledge, but they are also key to earning and maintaining careers in the manufacturing industry. This is because IPC training is recognized the world over as the gold standard for assembler training. Continue reading as we go in-depth with 5 popular manufacturing training courses.
J-STD-001 H Standard
This fundamental course is a must-have for those seeking to enter into the world of electrical and electronic assemblies. Otherwise known as Requirements for Soldered Electrical and Electronic Assemblies, the J-STD-001H standard defines the latest criteria outlining soldering processes and materials. Students of this course will learn how to address contemporary cleaning and residue requirements.
IPC-A-610 H Standard
Acceptability of Electronic Assemblies – otherwise known as IPC-A-610 – is the most widely used standard for electronics assembly in the world. This course is invaluable for all inspectors, operators, and trainers due to its detailed statements reflecting proper workmanship for electronics assemblies. In this latest revision, there have been various updates to acceptance and defect classes throughout the standard, including several new surface mount component types and removes target conditions.
IPC-WHMA-A-620 D Standard
This course – developed by the IPC in tandem with the Wire Harness Manufacturers Association – remains the only industry-consensus standard for Requirements and Acceptance for Cable and Wire Harness Assemblies. Any method that produces an assembly conforming to the requirements outlined in this standard may be used in the manufacturing industry. As such, this certification is mandatory for assembly process engineers, quality assurance supervisors, training managers, and others responsible for the quality and reliability of cable and wire harness assemblies.
IPC-7711/7721 C Standard
To describe this course simply, IPC-7711 contains detailed procedures for rework of assemblies and printed circuit boards while IPC-7721 details how to repair and modify printed circuit boards. Together, this collective volume of information offers an introduction to Rework, Modification, and Repair of Electronic Assemblies. The processes outlined in the IPC-7711/7721 are intended to be used by operators who already have some knowledge in rework and repair of circuit boards.
The Acceptability of Printed Boards is the definitive illustrated guide to printed circuit board acceptability. In addition to illustrations of the target conditions that are either internally or externally observable on bare printed boards, revision K also provides new coverage on topics such as crazing, back-drilled structures, copper wrap plating, and more. The incredible array of pictures used in this course serve students with a greater understanding of the criteria contained within.
