With so many standards, certifications and training programs out there, how do you know which ones are right for you, or your labor force, when performing the different tasks in the manufacturing of electronic or electrical products? We get these questions all the time. Do we need certification? Do we not? Are we lacking knowledge training or skills training to manage or improve quality? What does it really mean to be certified to IPC-A-610 or J-STD-001? If all of this is a bit confusing, you are not alone. Join us as we build a foundation of concepts that you can incorporate into your decision making process to manage your training within the coming years.
Topics we will be reviewing are:
- Certification vs. demonstration of competency.
- Knowledge based programs and skills based training.
- Selecting programs based on required tasks and operator demographics.
- Understanding that training fails, but development succeeds.
