FEBRUARY 2021 I PCB007 MAGAZINE 43 will allow you more time to get involved in dif- ferent types of groups. I have discussed these in the past as a great way to get involved with shaping guidance documents from the IPC that may directly impact your business. Group members have extensive experience with the document subject material and with each re- vision there is discussion about requirements, and a determination on whether the revision needs to be adjusted to reflect changes in the industry.

If you have any ques- tions, this course is a great opportunity to bet- ter explain the why and how related to those changes within the J-STD-001. ere is simply no shortage of topics when it comes to the tech sessions. You can learn about everything from raw components, printed cir- cuit boards, and solder paste/flux all the way up to final packaging. With these being 90 minutes in length you have a chance to take in many top- ics and speakers in a short period of time.
