Reading time ( words)

The SMTA is pleased to announce several upcoming dates and locations for the SMT Processes Certification Program.

There are three programs currently scheduled for Mexico. The first takes place May 17-19, 2022 in Juarez, CH, Mexico. The second is scheduled August 23-25, 2022 in Chihuahua, CH, Mexico. The third is co-located with the SMTA Guadalajara Expo from September 19-21, 2022 in Guadalajara, JA, Mexico. Ivan Castellanos, Indium Corporation, instructs all three programs.

Two certification programs currently scheduled in the US. The first is scheduled for June 6-8, 2022 in Germantown, WI. The second is co-located with SMTA International, November 1-3, 2022 in Minneapolis, MN. Jim Hall, ITM Consulting, will instruct both courses.

Each SMTA Certification program is a three-day offering consisting of a 1.5-day refresher workshop. The program concludes on days two and three with an open and closed book examination. This is not an entry-level program. Basic algebra will be used in the workshop and examination. This challenging examination requires both written answers and calculations with the intent to enable the attendee to establish competitive credentials as "Certified" by the SMTA in SMT Processes. The program is unique as it recognizes and certifies the entire SMT assembly process at an engineering level. The title earned by Certified SMT Process Engineers is CSMTPE.

Dallas SMTA Expo: Open for Business

03/30/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007
This year’s theme was “Texas is Open for Business,” and the turnout seemed to reflect that observation. We saw a steady stream of attendees arriving throughout the day, and most of them stayed through the barbecue lunch and happy hour. Dallas SMTA Expo and Tech Forum is becoming much more than a regional show. I met exhibitors and attendees from around the southwest, and a few from across the country. The Plano Event Center has a configurable layout that can accommodate events of all sizes, and next year’s show is expected to be even bigger.
