  • July 5, 2012: PCB Manufacture Part 4 at 14.30 BST; Topics addressed include legend, routing, electrical testing, inspection & QC, and PCB storage.

Four highly experienced PCB engineers will offer their advice during each Webinar. The price for the series, presentation materials and access to the online recordings is £200+VAT. A single Webinar can be booked at £65+VAT. To support the Webinar content, each delegate booking all four sessions will receive two sets of training charts covering PCB manufacture and typical PCB-related failures for company reference.
