Course Description:

The purpose of this course is to assist the individuals who either manage or work in coating operations to have a clear understanding of conformal coating requirements. The user will gain the knowledge and understanding of the objectives of applying conformal coating and how to verify that the desired results have been achieved. The learner will become familiar with the application of conformal coatings and how to reference the IPC-CC-830B and IPC-HDBK-830 Guidelines for Design, Selection and Application of Conformal Coating to make accept/reject workmanship decisions.

Hands-on preparation, application may be added to this course when taught at your facility.
