IPC-A-600 Training and Certification Materials Now Available

The training and certification program for Revision H of IPC-A-600, Acceptability of Printed Boards (including related coverage of Revision C of IPC-6012, Qualification and Performance Specification for Rigid Printed Boards) is now available. Of special note is the restructuring of the IPC-A-600 CIT and CIS exams to incorporate full-color pictures and to eliminate redundancy in the questions while still assuring a comprehensive understanding of the criteria.

A training material list is available to view and/or download through this link. The kit can by ordered by currently certified IPC-A-600 CITs from IPC customer service via phone at +1 847-597-2862, e-mail at mailto:orderipc@ipc.org or fax to +1 847-615-7114.

Certified IPC Trainers and application specialists must recertify after two years. Combined, there are more than 1,700 certified application specialists, 375 certified trainers and 23 authorized certification centers worldwide for IPC-A-600.

Comments from the user community were very important in updating the certification programs. IPC is very grateful to the training and certification committees for their hard work.

Revision H of IPC-A-600 and the associated certification program is being translated into Chinese and German, with additional languages to follow. For more information on IPC certification and updated training material lists for certified trainers, visit www.ipc.org/certification.
