NTS Training and Events

Helping You Stay Ahead

Throughout the year, NTS hosts a number of events ranging from open houses to seminars, to training, and co-sponsored industry workshops. Through these events, our goal is to help educate, inform, and train customers on various topics including: testing (e.g. HALT, Vibration), standards and requirements (RTCA DO-160, MIL-STD-810), the global market (International Approvals), certification (Lightning, IPC) and many others.

Scroll down to see the upcoming training that are planned so far for this year and check back to see what new events have been added. Also, if there is a specific topic that you are interested in learning about, we want to hear it. Send an email to events@nts.com and we will try to make it happen.

If there’s a training you’d like to attend that’s outside of our Baltimore and Anaheim locations, please contact ipctraining@nts.com today.
