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)

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.
