The IPC-6012C standard establishes and defines the qualification and performance requirements for the fabrication of rigid printed boards.
IPC received hundreds of requests from companies worldwide to support this critical standard with a formal training program that recognizes individuals as qualified instructors and application specialists. Now, IPC has an industry developed and approved comprehensive training and certification program based on IPC-6012 that gives companies all the tools they need to increase employee skills and performance. With supporting images from the IPC-A-600H, the IPC-6012 program incorporates content from both standards giving the students the technical knowledge to remain highly competitive in today’s market.
IPC’s 6012 Training and Certification Program is built on a train-the-trainer instructional model. A company seeking to create an IPC Licensed 6012 Certified IPC Trainer sends their candidate to an IPC Licensed IPC-6012 Certification Center. The training program uses exercises as well as classroom instruction to teach the standard criteria.
IPC’s 6012 Training and Certification Program provides individuals with a valuable, portable credential that recognizes their understanding of the IPC-6012. This program is offered as a service to industry, therefore its adoption is not a precondition for any company to purchase the standard or claim that they build product to its requirements.
Those interested in company-wide quality assurance initiatives have an IPC-sponsored program to support their commitment to continuous operations and product improvement. IPC recognition sends a strong message to customers that your company is serious about implementing IPC-6012.
