SCHEDULE REGISTRATION CONTACT US

IPC/WHMA-A-620, Requirements and Acceptance for Cable and Wire Harness Assemblies, has become the most important process, materials, and inspections standard for the cable and wire harness industry. Developed with support from the Wire Harness Manufacturers’ Association, the document and training has earned an international reputation as the source for end-product acceptance. This class allows trainers to instruct associates within their companies to perform their own IPC 620 certification program to build up IPC-A-620 IPC specialists.
Their IPC-A-620 certification prepares individuals to deliver Certified IPC Specialist (CIS) training and helps enhance employee skills and performance. Additionally, certification demonstrates your commitment to continuous improvement of product quality and reliability, and greatly facilitates certification to ISO or other quality assurance initiatives. The IPC/WHMA-A-620 Certified IPC Trainer (CIT) provides individuals with a portable credential that represents their understanding of IPC/WHMA-A-620.
