SMTA Provides Spanish Language Support for Online Assembly Process Training

Reading time ( words)

The SMTA is proud to announce that most 101-level online training courses on assembly processes are currently available with captions for English and Spanish languages. One course, Stencil Printing 101 has been completely translated, including Spanish narration by Sergio Chavez, a member of the SMTA Mexico-Querétaro Chapter, as well as all slides and quiz questions written in Spanish.

“The SMTA Training Committee is committed to providing low cost, self-paced training to the industry that is useful and accessible for SMTA members globally,” said SMTA Communications Director Ryan Flaherty. “In response to direct course feedback, we decided to prioritize accessibility for the growing demand in Spanish-speaking regions like Mexico as well as for all members for whom English is not their primary language. The addition of both English and Spanish captions provides the broadest support for SMTA members.”

Ideal for technicians or engineers new to electronics manufacturing, SMTA online training courses provide basic process knowledge enabling learners to identify defects, increase capability, and exceed manufacturing goals. Each course registration includes one year of access to recorded trainings. Managers can easily obtain proof of knowledge since a certificate of completion is made available only after the learner successfully passes a comprehensive quiz.

Courses are offered at an affordable rate for SMTA members. Course details and registration are available online at: or in Spanish at
