Brett JohnsonCertified IPC Trainer, SGX Sensor Tech

On the 24th August I attended my IPC-A-610 refresher course at ART training centre, they explained the changes to the latest IPC-A-610 revision, these changes addressed many issues and yet again thedocument has seen improvements. I have had the pleasure in training over 50 students and the new changes and the new online testing method will make training so much easier. I once again received a level of training that I believe can’t be matched, I would strongly recommend to any company looking to “up their game” ART training centre is the place to go for all your training needs. MIT’s(Master IPC Trainers) Debbie and John will assist you and know what it takes to help you raise the bar. Quality is so important in today’s market place, this is the way to go.

Bernard TouillaudBT Formation Conseil, France

7 years ago, I followed the CIT training for the IPC 610 with ART. At that time, my employer was a large professional electronics company in France, THALES. Since then, from recertification to recertification through CIT certification of IPC 620, I have always remained faithful to ART Ltd. Thank you Debbie and John for the patience they have shown particularly for my deplorable English.

Andreas GregorMaster IPC Trainer, Consultronica

I have been attending training courses at ART since 2010, they have always been very accommodating and very flexible when I have to recertify. Being situated close to Stansted Airport makes this very convenient for me flying in from Spain. Debbie Wade & John Vickers serve on various IPC committees and are always more than helpful to discuss any changes to IPC procedure’s. I would not hesitate to recommend them for all of your IPC requirements.
