IPC-A-610 INSTRUCTOR

Introduction to IPC-A-610 Instructor

This 4-day, lectured course utilizes the images in the IPC-A-610 document to provide visual accept/reject criteria examples for all three classes of assembly production–for both lead and lead-free. The IPC-A-610, “The Acceptability of Electronic Assemblies”, is the most widely used inspection specification for the PWB assembly industry.

The IPC-A-610 specification is the focal point of this course and will be covered in its entirety. As part of the requirements for certification, students must score at least an 80% average and no single score less than 70% on the final examinations.
