Requirements and Acceptance for Cable and Wire Harness Assemblies Training and Certification Program
IPC/WHMA-A-620 enjoyed almost immediate international acceptance since its first release in 2002, and quickly became the most important process, materials and inspection standard for the cable and wire harness industry. Developed with support of the Wire Harness Manufacturer’s Association, the document and training programs have been published in several languages and the standard has earned an international reputation as the source for end-product acceptance.  Now updated to lead free for terminal soldering criteria, IPC/WHMA-A-620 has been embraced by original equipment manufacturers and electronics manufacturing services companies worldwide.

Why earn IPC/WHMA-A-620 certification?
Certification in this industry-approved and traceable program demonstrates your commitment to continuous improvement of product quality and reliability, and greatly facilitates certification to ISO or other quality assurance initiatives. The CIT, CSE and CIS programs provide individuals with a portable credential that represents their understanding of IPC/WHMA-A-620, and offers recognition, legitimacy and value throughout the electronics industry.
