IPC Certification Continues to Attract Even in Downturn

One interesting thing we are seeing at IPC is that participation in certification programs is strong even in the midst of the recession. Since December 2008, the number of certified IPC trainers for our five standards-based programs (IPC-A-610, IPC-A-600, IPC-7711/21, J-STD-001 and IPC/WHMA-A-620) has increased by 11.5%. Clearly some companies are continuing to invest in training to the industry standards their customers recognize and value. At the end of June, there were more than 8500 current CITs worldwide (it’s a little confusing, but that doesn’t mean 8500 individual people as some definitely hold more than one). For more information, visit www.ipc.org/certification.

If you’re certified, it would be great to hear your comments on how the training has helped you and how it’s working out.
