PBT Works is a certified and licenced Training Center for IPC 610
We offer training courses for CIS as well as CIT. For participants from Czech and Slovak Republic, the primary language is Czech. We are also able to provide training in German or English language. Training is preferably held in our facility in Rožnov pod Radhoštěm. If a complete group of students, e.g. from one company, is interested in a training, we are able to do it at their site. The dates for training in 2017 are announced in section NEWS. We organize training generally 4 times a year. If there is any special request for a complete class, we can add other date. Currently we train and certify according to version E. As a special bonus of our course we share our long term knowledge of soldering theory, bare PCB manufacturing process, component design and requirements (limitations) and cleaning of electronic assemblies.
Training of acceptance criteria for electronic assembly according to ANSI/IPC-A-610 is very much suitable for all workers from assembly, repair, QC, for process engineers, designers, and chiefs of assembly dept., procurement and sales dept. The task of the training is to understand the meaning of the individual acceptance criteria. For that, the student should have at least minimal knowledge of the process. In order to improve such knowledge, we add some basic theory of soldering, explain structure of solder joint, its strain in the assembly life and main factors and factors which have influence on fatigue of solder joint.
The standard consists of 9 modules, which include the complete topics of acceptance. One training is for maximal 15 persons in the class.

The test is done from randomly selected questions by checking one of four possible answers. Each student receives his own combination of questions. Modules 1 and 2 are tested with closed book, all other modules are tested with open book. Students must get over 70% of good answers in all modules, to be qualified to get an official IPC certificate with registration number and 2 year validity.
