IPC-A-610 Certified IPC Trainer (CIT)

Acceptability of Electronic Assemblies for Trainers

The IPC-A-610 Training and Certification Program offers those interested in company-wide quality assurance initiatives in an industry traceable, IPC-sponsored program to support their commitment to continuous improvement of product quality and reliability. The program provides individuals with a portable credential that represents their understanding of the IPC-A-610.

IPC-A-610 Certified IPC Trainer (CIT) candidates are sent by their parent companies to receive intensive training on the IPC-A-610 from an IPC authorized certification center. Candidates are certified once they complete their course of study and pass the certification examinations. If they feel they do not need the training course, candidates may opt to take a “challenge test” administered by one of the certification centers. IPC-A-610 Certified IPC Trainers (CIT) are provided instructional materials for training Certified IPC¬†Specialist (CIS) in a modular training program. IPC-A-610 Certified IPC Trainers (CIT) are considered certified for two years after the course completion date. They must then re-certify at an IPC authorized certification site.

Who Should Become an IPC-A-610 Certified IPC Trainer (CIT)?

Anyone responsible for the quality and reliability of electronic assemblies should consider becoming an IPC-A-610 Certified IPC Trainer (CIT). Trainers and quality supervisors versed in electronic assembly are excellent candidates for A-610 training, as are engineering and manufacturing supervisors with assembly responsibilities.

The term for an IPC-A-610 Certified IPC Trainer (CIT) is two years. Re-certification training is conducted at the IPC Licensed Certification Centers.
