The education and training goal of this program is to improve individual “discrimination” skills; that is, to improve accuracy of discrimination between “acceptable” or “unacceptable” completed electronic assemblies per the IPC-A-610 series. This program will also teach individuals the reasons for the accept/reject criteria to enhance their motivation and ability to apply the discrimination criteria consistently and correctly.
Upon satisfactory completion of this course, students will be able to make correct “accept/reject” decisions for finished electronic assemblies based on the acceptability requirements of IPC-A-610.
