Nearly everything electronic in the universe depends on the printed circuit board PCB. For many years, the IPC-A Acceptability of Printed Boards and IPC Qualification and Performance Specification for Rigid Printed Boards documents have set the standard for PCB workmanship quality, giving comprehensive acceptance criteria with full color illustrations and photographs showing all types of printed board surface and internal conditions.
The IPC-A Training and Certification Program helps all segments of the electronics interconnection industry improve their understanding of printed board quality issues, greatly enhances communication between PCB manufacturers, their suppliers and their customers and provides a valuable portable credential to industry professionals as well as recognition for their companies. Printed Board Manufacturers Knowledge of acceptance criteria is essential in tracing nonconforming conditions to their origins in the manufacturing process.
This program also makes a powerful statement to users of printed boards that a company is serious about continuous quality improvement. Industry-recognized, technically accurate training for anyone involved in PCB fabrication did not exist until now. IPC-A Training and Certification gives the assembler the information to do a better job at incoming inspection. Knowing acceptable conditions means that PCBs are not needlessly scrapped; knowing nonconforming conditions saves the assembler from an expensive component mounting operation.
Designers will learn the baseline requirements for board quality for all classes of product. Material and equipment suppliers along with OEMs will sharpen their ability to recognize nonconforming conditions. The program is built on a train-the-trainer model. The training program provides a detailed review of the IPC-A criteria and concludes with a qualifying examination.
The Application Specialist training is modular and allows for any or all of the four sections of the document to be taught. Those interested in company-wide quality assurance initiatives have an industry developed and approved, IPC-sponsored program to support their commitment to continuous operations and product improvement.

All IPC-A Certified IPC Trainers receive the instructional materials for teaching the Application Specialist training course, including: A CD-ROM with more than full color visuals covering all aspects of the standard and training course, student handbook files for royalty-free printing, and all reports and forms required for conducting Application Specialist training.
IPC-6012 or IPC-A-600: Which Standard Should You Use?
IPC-A-600 Certification Definition
The Association Connecting Electronics Industries — commonly known as IPC Institute of Printed Circuits — is an international trade association serving the printed circuit board and electronics assembly industries. Manufacturers have to comply with many comprehensive inspection specifications that are in the IPC standard, and designers have to be careful about IPC Class 2 Vs Class 3 different design rules , for instance. They both work hand in hand. IPC is a specification which establishes and defines the qualification and performance requirements for the fabrication of rigid PCB s.
