Clinton, N.Y. — Three of The Indium Corp.'s technical support engineers have attained SMTA Certification for the SMT Process.
Earning the title of Certified Process Engineer are:
- Karl Pfluke

- David Sbiroli
Pfluke has worked in the materials industry for nine years and has a certification in powder metallurgy technology.
Jensen has spent five years in the SMT materials field and has a BS in chemical engineering.
Sbiroli has more than 10 years' experience in the area of SMT and electronic interconnect materials and holds a BS in mechanical engineering technology.
The Surface Mount Technology Association (SMTA) has recently introduced the Certification Program which, they believe, will soon become one of the electronic assembly industry's most respected qualifications. Two independent certification programs and exams are offered, one for the SMT Process, the other for SMT Systems.
SMTA Certification offers companies the opportunity to receive assurance that their staff is trained on, and aware of, key concepts. It also offers the company an opportunity to differentiate itself from its competition due to its trained and certified staff.
SMTA Certification offers individuals the opportunity to learn, to demonstrate their knowledge, and to distinguish their skill set from other individuals.
The SMTA is an international network of professionals who build skills, share practical experience, and develop solutions in electronic assembly technologies and related business operations. For more information, visit www.smta.org.
