24 DESIGN007 MAGAZINE I APRIL 2024 Feature Q&A With Kelly Allen IPC TRAINING MANAGER Kelly (Kel) Allen shares her thoughts on the educational offerings at IPC APEX EXPO and beyond. In this interview, she discusses some of the newest classes taking place during the conference in Anaheim, covering everything from design, fab, and assembly through mil/ aero, test, and supply chain issues. Kel, why should PCB designers and design engineers attend the conference at IPC APEX EXPO? Kelly Allen: Adult learners appreciate practical knowledge. In our online classes, PCB design- ers and design engineers connect theoretical What's New in Design Education at IPC APEX EXPO? concepts to real-world situations, making our online classroom discussions dynamic and rel- evant. Many are driven by personal and profes- sional goals so attending an APEX EXPO Pro- fessional Development Course allows them to actively participate, ask the speaker thought- provoking questions, and engage in meaning- ful dialogue. Our industry keeps our designers so busy that many do not have time to take one of our long-form courses. Yet they can invest a few days to take PD courses, attend committee meetings, network with colleagues, and see the latest in manufacturing and products on the show floor.
