DVD-SPPTH-D dual-language (Spanish-English ) DVD is a cost-effective and efficient way to train and test your entire workforce to the most widely recognized industry standards on plated-through hole solder joint acceptance criteria.

DVD-SPPTH-D uses sophisticated computer graphics-animations and microphotography to insure operator-level comprehension of the IPC-A-610D-J-STD-001 requirements, as illustrated in the IPC DRM-PTH-D - Through-Hole Solder Joint Evaluation Training and Reference Guide.
Section One contents include PTH solder joint terminology, industry specifications for solder joint acceptance standards, product classes and process indicators.

Section Two details min.-max. acceptable dimensional and visual requirements for component side; barrel; and solder side.

Section Three explains visual criteria for such defects as solder balls, projections, bridging, webbing, voids, cold-disturbed joints, exposed basis metal, fractures, lead protrusion and flux residues.

DVD menu selection allows instructors to select from Class 2 and-or Class 3 acceptance criteria. Written testing allows you to verify comprehension, and Training Certification certificates are included for students with passing grades. DVD-PTH-D provides documented training-verification for an unlimited number of students at your facility. Can also be used as a stand-alone training program where students can study each requirement at their own pace. This DVD program also notates all criteria that have changed from revision C of the IPC-A-610, for easy identification of the latest requirements. Time: 28 minutes. Includes Training Certification.

Notes on DVD / OVT Product Descriptions:

Items preceded by an order number beginning with DVD, are digital video products. These DVDs are designed to play on DVD movie players. They can also be played on computers using DVD playback software.

Items preceded by OVT are Online Video Training products. These digital movies are designed for playback on computers / networks – depending on the license type you purchase. OVT-(S) is Site License (single facility). OVT-(G) is a Global License (multi-site).


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.
