IPC A610H ACCEPTABILITY OF ELECTRONIC ASSEMBLIES TRAINING
INTRODUCTION FOR IPC A610H ACCEPTABILITY OF ELECTRONIC ASSEMBLIES TRAINING
This 2 days training program will provide the participants with knowledge and skills required in understanding all aspects of IPC A610H standards including product classifications, components and solderability accept / reject criteria, defects categories in detail technical perspective.
It gives the participants the knowledge, skills and competence required to negotiate better with QC and customers during a dispute, disagreement or product training on the standards established for the accept / reject criteria conditions.
Program Objective: Enhance knowledge and skills in the following areas.
- Know IPC A610H new inclusions.
- The terminologies, terms and definitions.
- IPC standards and it’s requirements
- Product classifications.
- Form, Fit and Function.
- Accept and Reject criteria of electronic components and solderability in interconnects, packaging and electronic circuits.
- Documents applicable to IPC A610H.
- Expose to close and open book tests, assessment and qualification.
- Establish certification thro qualifying Pre and Post Tests.
- Get qualified in IPC A610H with great negotiating skills with customer on return goods criteria.
- Able to train operators in process standards to maintain product quality.
