IPC Offers Tech Ed Course on Utilizing J-STD-001 and IPC-A-620 Together


Reading time ( words)

IPC’s popular standards, J-STD-001, recognized globally for its criteria on soldering processes and materials, and IPC-A-610, the most widely used electronics assembly acceptance document, complement each other when used together. IPC offers a new technical education course, Process and Acceptability Requirements: Utilizing J-STD-001 and IPC-A-610 Together, to provide instruction on how best to use these documents jointly.

This course is ideally suited for process engineers, quality managers, auditors and others defining contractual requirements for soldering and acceptance.

Attendees will learn:

  •     How these documents complement each other and where they differ;
  •     How to provide clear instructions on drawings and documentation;
  •     What takes precedence when a conflict occurs in the requirements;
  •     How to navigate the complex world of ensuring staff training and proficiency requirements can be met.
  •     What is needed to properly flow down requirements to suppliers and the pitfalls of taking shortcuts.

“J-STD-001 and IPC-A-610 are written and revised in synergy,” said Teresa Rowe, senior director, assembly and standards technology, “so it makes sense to use them together. This course is designed to teach attendees how to use these standards jointly.”

Courses will be offered in the following locations:

  • April 2, 2019, King of Prussia, Pennsylania (full-day course)
  • May 5-6, 2019, Nuremberg, Germany (full-day course delivered over two half days)
  • September 10, 2019, Huntsville, Alabama (full-day course)
  • December 3, 2019, Anaheim, California (full-day course)
