Requirements and Acceptance for Cable and Wire Harness Assemblies for Trainers
The IPC/WHMA-A-620 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/WHMA-A-620.
IPC/WHMA-A-620 Certified IPC Trainer (CIT) candidates are sent by their parent companies to receive intensive training on the IPC/WHMA-A-620 from an IPC authorized certification center. Candidates are certified once they complete their course of study and pass the certification examinations.

IPC/WHMA-A-620 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.
