The training course will cover the following points:-

  • Establishing and maintaining integrity of the certification programs

  • Purpose and application of IPC-A-610

  • Hardware installations

  • Soldering criteria, including lead free connections

  • Practical and theory soldering requirements for connecting to terminals, turrets, bifucated, hook, pierced and cups

  • Surface mounting criteria for chip components, leadless and leaded chip carriers

  • Swaged hardware and heatsink requirements of mechanical assemblies

  • Component mounting criteria for DIPS, socket pins, card edge connectors, SOICs, diodes, D-PAKs, resistors, QFPs and SOTs

  • Jumper wire assembly requirements

  • Solder fillet dimensional criteria for all major SMT component groups

  • Soldering, such as tombstoning, de-wetting, voiding and others

  • Criteria for component damage, laminate conditions, cleaning and coating

And the end goal is to...

Increase End-Product Quality and Reliability


Quality and reliability are essential to compete in the marketplace and critical to a company’s reputation and profitability. When IPC standards are implemented throughout the manufacturing process, companies help ensure better performance and longer life of their products as well as compliance with industry best practices and requirements.


Improve Communication Externally and Internally

When companies work from established IPC standards, they speak the same language with customers and suppliers — the language of the global electronics industry. These same companies benefit internally from employees who work together to meet the performance requirements and speak the same language needed to improve communications internally.

Manage and Reduce Costs

Companies that insist on adhering to IPC standards throughout product development help enable the production of electronics assemblies that can meet stringent quality and reliability requirements — minimizing costly delays, rework and scrap.
