The IPC-6012 training and certification is a training based on the IPC-6012 document. This is a document from a series of multiple documents and in particular this document deals with the rigid printed circuit boards that are most commonly used in the electronics industry. The document specifies what a printed circuit board supplier must perform, what documentation is required to make a printed circuit board, but also which tests must be carried out and it contains a number of mandatory and optional tests.
Furthermore, this document indicates the materials with which the printed circuit boards should be produced and the values that are set for copper thicknesses, copper layer thicknesses, copper track widths, deviations that may occur, tolerances that apply in particular in the area of so-called finishes (final layers that are placed over the copper to protect the copper). All this can be found in this document and is addressed in this training. It is one of the important basic documents for a printed circuit board supplier which serves as an important reference with regard to the production processes of printed circuit boards and the materials used.
