IPC/WHMA-A-620 Requirements and Acceptance for Cable and Wire Harness Assemblies – Initial Certification

Course Overview

Developed by IPC with support of the Wire Harness Manufacturer’s Association, IPC/WHMA-A-620 is the industry standard for cable and wire harness fabrication and installation. This theory-only training is aimed at equipping delegates with the knowledge required to understand procedures for fault finding, rectification, methods of soldering and quality of finished product on cable and wire harness assemblies. Successfully completing the course will enable delgates to improve their ability to correctly discriminate between an acceptable and unacceptable cable or wire harness assembly as specified in the IPC/WHMA-A-620 Standard.
