IPC/WHMA-A-620 is the industry standard for cable and wire harness fabrication and installation. The course aims to teach personnel how to verify the quality of work that is being done to ensure compliance and proper inspection. The objective of the course is to teach correct application of the standard, which defines acceptability criteria for crimped, mechanically secured and soldered interconnection and the corresponding lacing/restraining criteria associated with cable and harness assemblies.
This course is for students who are currently certified in the IPC/WHMA-A-620 Hands-On course but need to renew within 6 months before expiration to keep current in the program without interruption. This course provides a brief review of the updated information on program requirements along with time to complete required hands-on tasks.
