AIM Solder announced that Kevin Pigeon, senior applications manager – has successfully completed the SMT Processes Certification program, and is now recognized as a Certified SMT Process Engineer (CSMTPE).

The SMTA Certification Program is a three-day classroom seminar, intended for experienced SMT Process and Manufacturing Engineers, where multiple SMT manufacturing process topics are reviewed and discussed in preparation for the final examination. The program concludes with a challenging day-long open book test that requires both written answers and calculations, with the intent to enable the attendee to establish competitive credentials, as certified by the SMTA.

“We are proud of Kevin’s achievements and thrilled to have him on our global technical applications team,” said Carlos Tafoya, AIM’s technical support director. “We are confident that Kevin will continue to share his knowledge with our staff and customers, contributing to the continued success of our team.”
