DECEMBER 2019 I DESIGN007 MAGAZINE 31 And if you are not yet CID/CID+ certified, I highly recommend these certification cours- es as a path for continued education in PCB design. For 2020 CID and CID+ certification schedules and locations, contact EPTAC Cor- poration to check current dates and availabil- ity. Note: Dates and locations are subject to change, and a minimum enrollment of seven students is required for a class to be held. The IPC Designers Council is an international network of designers. Its mission is to promote printed circuit board design as a profession and to encourage, facilitate, and promote the ex- change of information and integration of new design concepts through communications, sem- inars, workshops, and professional certification through a network of local chapters. DESIGN007 Stephen Chavez, MIT, CID+, is a member of the IPC Designers Coun- cil Executive Board and chairman of the communications subcommit- tee. To read past columns or contact Chavez, click here. I plan to step down. I will remain active in an ancillary position to support the chapter as re- quired. I publicly announced my plan to step down as president of the chapter at PCB Car- olina during the keynote. I have publicly en- dorsed Randy Faucette (current VP) as the new president, and we are working to bring a new face to the VP position. IPC CID/CID+ Certification Success We continue to have successful IPC CID and CID+ certification courses as we close out 2019. Our most recent class successes were held in many diverse locations throughout the U.S. and abroad. Several recent classes to mention over these last few months ranged in locations from Santa Clara, California (PCB West), to Schaumburg, Illinois; Anaheim, Cali- fornia; Dallas, Texas; Raleigh, North Carolina (PCB Carolina); and Scottsdale, Arizona; and the last class of the year was held in Manches- ter, New Hampshire. Congratulations again to all those who have successfully achieved their IPC CID or CID+ certification. These certifica- tion courses are an excellent source of profes- sional development.
