SMTA Announces Upcoming SMT Certification Dates and Locations

Apr 07, 2011

The SMTA proudly announces four upcoming offerings of SMT Certification in Toronto, Schaumburg, Santa Clara, and Fort Worth. The SMTA Certification program is unique, as it recognizes and certifies the entire SMT assembly process at an engineering level.

Each SMTA Certification program is a three-day offering consisting of a 1.5-day refresher workshop on topics in SMT Processes or Six Sigma/Greenbelt. The program concludes on days two and three with an open and closed book examination.

Upcoming SMT Certification Dates and Locations:

  • May 3-5 (Processes) - Toronto, ON

    In conjunction with the International Conference on Soldering & Reliability (ICSR)

  • Sept 20-22 (Processes) - Schaumburg, IL

    In conjunction with IPC Midwest

  • October 3-5 (Processes & Six Sigma/Green Belt) - Santa Clara, CA

    In conjunction with the International Wafer-Level Packaging Conference (IWLPC)

  • October 18-20 (Processes & Six Sigma/Green Belt) - Fort Worth, TX

In conjunction with the SMTA International Conference and Electronics Exposition (SMTAI) SMTA Certification is intended for manufacturing and process engineers. Additionally, production, design, test and quality engineering personnel, as well as SMT assembly managers who want to confirm their current competence at a fundamental level of overall process technology should also consider participating.

For information on certification or to register, contact Patti Hvidhyld at 952-920-7682 or patti@smta.org, or visit http://www.smta.org/certification/certification.cfm.


The SMTA membership is an international network of professionals who build skills, share practical experience and develop solutions in electronic assembly technologies, including microsystems, emerging technologies, and related business operations.
