Nearly everything electronic in the universe depends on the printed circuit board (PCB). For many years, the IPC-A-600 Acceptability of Printed Boards and IPC-6012 Qualification and Performance Specification for Rigid Printed Boards documents have set the standard for PCB workmanship quality, giving comprehensive acceptance criteria with full color illustrations and photographs showing all types of printed board surface and internal conditions. Because of its importance to both the PCB manufacturer and assembler, the IPC-A-600 has become one of the most widely used documents ever published by IPC.

The IPC-A-600 Training and Certification Program helps all segments of the electronics interconnection industry improve their understanding of printed board quality issues, greatly enhances communication between PCB manufacturers, their suppliers and their customers and provides a valuable portable credential to industry professionals as well as recognition for their companies.

IPC-A-600 training for Trainers or staff?

There are three levels of IPC-A-600 training.

  • To have your team able to apply the standard you need the Certified IPC Specialist (CIS) level.
  • The Certified Standards Expert (CSE) is a subject matter professional with a high level of knowledge and understanding of a specific IPC standard or group of standards
  • To take responsibility for your own training, at least one of your team must gain the Certified IPC Trainer (CIT) level to train and certify other staff. Any company with large number of staff who will benefits from IPC-A-600 knowledge and certification my find it more beneficial to have a Certified Trainer to train and maintain its own employees.
