IPC/WHMA-A-620 Training for Instructor
The IPC-A-620 training for instructors (CITs) is a program centered on the IPC-A-620 Requirements and Acceptance for Cable and Wire Harness Assemblies, the well-recognized document for wire and cable harness acceptance criteria. This standard, developed in conjunction with the Wire Harness Manufacturers Association or WHMA for short, defines the standard for cable and wire harness fabrication and installation. In this standard, the classes for the wire and cable harness product, as well as defined criteria, are explained through tables, charts, illustration, and photographs. In the instructor program, training students sitting to become full-fledged instructors will have to demonstrate their knowledge of the entire standard by successfully passing a written examination.
IPC-A-620 instructor certification class teaches instructors to be able to describe the acceptability criteria for crimped, soldered and mechanically secured interconnections. The class also covers lacing and restraining criteria associated with both wire harnesses and cables.
The IPC-A-620 training for instructor program is an industry-developed training and certification program. It includes access to the training, certification, and instructional materials based on the IPC-A-620. Many IPC-A-620 instructors have been trained in this comprehensive program, IPC/WHMA-A-620 training and certification provides certified IPC trainers with high-quality materials and detailed instructional outlines which have been used for training CIS candidates. These CIS/associates come from all walks of life in an organization from buyers to sales teams and management.
IPC A-620 Training For Instructor Program Benefits
Certification demonstrates the commitment to customer requirements and greatly facilitates certification to ISO certification or other quality assurance initiatives. By having earned this portable credential, you’ll receive immediate recognition, legitimacy, and value throughout the electronics industry.
Once instructors have been certified the IPC-A-620 certification program can be used inside a given organization to train associates. At this point, the firm can pick and choose, outside of a few general modules, what information all of the associates will be trained to. Most companies have a minimum a couple of instructors so that in the event one of them is busy the other can provide instruction.
While the IPC-A-620 CIT instructor program does not include any hands-on elements BEST Inc can add practical training on “how to” crimp, strip wire, lap solder and build harnesses. This instruction can be given an extra 1 to 2 days of hands-instruction depending on the information wanting to be learned. The culmination of the full hands-on training is how to build a complete wire harness using a blueprint and the components and then reading off a print to assemble the harness.
