Chris was responsible for organization of the video script, the resolution of committee technical comments, and also provided the hands-on demonstrations shown in the video.

“It takes an exceptional amount of patience and skill to perform on-screen soldering for an IPC video… creating the sample, setting up the lighting, performing the action flawlessly, along with the inevitable retakes. This process would test the patience of any ordinary mortal. Chris is wonderful to work with, and he does his job amazingly well… it’s a real pleasure to be able to work together,” said Mark Pritchard, IPC video producer.

Our sincere thanks to Chris (aka “CB”) and the management of Safari Circuits for their continued support of the IPC training efforts for the electronics assembly industry.

All of these videos will be available in the new IPC online video subscription library.
