Now updated to Revision F of the IPC-A-610 -- the Acceptability of Electronic Assemblies -- this media-based training program is a cost-effective and efficient way to train and test your entire workforce to the most widely recognized industry standard on surface mount solder joint criteria.
DVD-SMT-F uses state-of-the-art computer graphics and animations, as well as microphotography to insure operator-level comprehension of some of the key acceptance requirements from the IPC-A-610F for Chip, J-Lead, and Gull Wing solder joints, as illustrated in the DRM-SMT-F -- Surface Mount Solder Joint Evaluation Training & Reference Guide. (Complimentary copy of DRM-SMT-F included with purchase of this DVD.)
This updated video also covers solder joint quality standards for two new Area Array component types: Ball Grid Arrays (BGAs) and Bottom Termination Components (BTCs). DVD menu controls allows instructors to select from Class 2 or Class 3 acceptance criteria. Course contents cover quality standards for dimensional criteria -- such as End Overhang, Side Joint Width, Fillet Height, etc. -- as well as defect identification for such undesirable conditions as Solder Balls, Blowholes, Solder Webbing, Chip-Outs, Non-Coplanarity, Incomplete Reflow, and more.
Also includes optional English subtitles(SDH) for the deaf or hard of hearing, and ESL students, Leader’s Guide, Review Questions, IPC Training Certification* Certificates for students who pass the final examination, and one free copy of DRM-SMT-F. Also available on Blu-ray, hi-definition video disc. (See "Related Products," below.) Time: 36 minutes.
Use our Free Paper-Based Testing with reuseable PDF certificates of completion for ISO “verification of training,” or take advantage of our Free Online Testing so you no longer have to grade tests or generate certificates by hand. (Both options are for unlimited students with no expiration.)
To host IPC training programs on your own PC, Corporate Network/Intranet, or Learning Management System (LMS), please choose our automated, computer-based Online Video Training (OVT) format. Equivalent OVT program is listed in the shopping cart options.

Training Certification is an ideal way to train and verify competency in key subject areas, like ESD Control, Lead Free Soldering, Component ID, Safety, and Acceptance Standards. These multi-media based resources include everything a trainer needs to instruct, test and certify that their operators have completed a course successfully. All students with a grade of 70% or better on the final examinations qualify for IPC Training Certification. Please see the sample certificate (.pdf) which allows for user-customization of student name, instructor, and date of completion. There is no expiration / renewal date for any Training Certification program, and they may be administered by anyone in your company.
As an operator-level credential, Training Certification demonstrates mastery of the specific theory and knowledge contained in the course, as evidence of competency for ISO training requirements through an industry-developed training program. Training Certification does not qualify instructors or students to teach or interpret IPC specifications, or assure proficiency in the physical skills required to create products to the requirements of IPC specifications.
Like all IPC Video / DVD, OVT and Computer-Based (CD) training programs, Training Certification is available for unlimited students per the particular licensing structure chosen. These media-based training solutions are created in cooperation with volunteer industry experts – to ensure technical accuracy – and are free from commercial bias.
