IPC/WHMA Launches Wire Harness Assembly for Operators Course


Reading time ( words)

Many companies in the cable and wire harness manufacturing industry struggle to find skilled and knowledgeable production workers, identifying a need for a comprehensive fundamental training solution. To provide that solution, IPC/WHMA launches its newest workforce development training course, Wire Harness Assembly for Operators.

IPC’s Education team worked with industry subject-matter experts to develop a course that teaches the skills and competencies critical to a wire harness assembly operator.

The Wire Harness Assembly for Operators training course delivers to each participant the ability to identify and use the key tools, materials, and processes that wire harness operators need to reliably and repeatably assemble quality harnesses. The program is composed of 14 modules that allow organizations to implement customized learning paths for different roles in the organization.

Each learning module provides meaningful opportunities for students to actively engage with the content and apply what they learned in real-world contexts. The program’s carefully curated video presentations, detailed illustrations, interactive activities, and practice quizzes are all formulated to make even the most complex topics easy to understand and master.

Students that successfully complete the seven mandatory modules earn an IPC certificate that identifies them as a Qualified IPC Wire Harness Operator. These certificates are serialized with a unique ID number that can be utilized for validation and are valid for a two-year period.

“WHMA members participated extensively in the development of the WHO training program by identifying the breadth of topics and field testing the course. What we’ve delivered is a complete training solution for operators in the cable and wire harness industry.” said Rick Bromm, WHMA Chairman/ALTEX Wire and Cable president.

Carlos Plaza, Senior Director of Education Development at IPC, commented, “The response from IPC/WHMA members who have implemented the course has been overwhelmingly positive. Trainers are reporting that the explanations and examples used in the WHO program perfectly reflect the daily duties and skills required of their operators.”
