relationship between the IPC-A-600 and the IPC-6012. This program also makes a
powerful statement to users of printed boards that a company is serious about
continuous quality improvement. Industry-recognized, technically accurate
training for anyone involved in PCB fabrication did not exist until now.

Material and equipment suppliers along with OEMs will sharpen their ability to recognize nonconforming conditions.
