IPC/WHMA-A-620 Certified IPC Specialist (CIS) Course-Space




The IPC/WHMA-A-620 Space Addendum Training Program provides individuals with practical knowledge as well as the application of the specification on building wire and cable harnesses for space applications. Space applications are such that these wire and cable harnesses must survive the vibration and thermal cycling that goes on in space environments. Individuals, once they pass the requirements for accreditation will receive a valuable, portable credential that recognizes their understanding of the Requirements and Acceptance for Cable and Wire Harness Assemblies as outlined in the IPC/WHMA-A-620 Space addendum . This class has practical aspects to it consistent with building and outfitting cable and wire harness assemblies built for space applications. This course is supported by actual cable building exercises and concludes with a qualifying examination. The majority of the class time is spent hands-on.

In order to sit for the IPC-A-620 Space Addendum course, the student must have the base IPC/WHMA-A-620 CIS certification as a prerequisite. This class will be taught over a period of (5) days.

Students will learn how to build and install cables as part of the instruction. Soldering, attaching wires to IDC connections , soldering to cup terminals, crimping machine contacts, crimping insulated lugs, , wire splices, coax connectors, shield terminations, including routing using ty-raps/lacing cord, shielding–braid and shrink-tubing, and testing of the final product are all skills which will be demonstrated and be taught as part of the class instruction. Upon successful completion of this course, students are certified for 24 months. In-process quality inspectors, assembly technicians, incoming quality inspectors, and wire and cable harness fabricators are the targeted participants for this class.
