Congratulations on your recent ISO 9001:2008 certification.

I wanted to make you aware of additional training and certification from EPTAC that may be beneficial to Waldom Electronics.

In cooperation and partnership with Independent Distributors of Electronics Association (IDEA), EPTAC offers training in Counterfeit Identification and Mitigation as well as an introduction to IDEA-STD-1010, including training in methods for the visual detection of counterfeit and substandard characteristics, through a one-day, hands-on workshop. The training environment provides a unique opportunity to examine real components with live, on-site microscopic magnification to obtain experience in the visual inspection techniques of IDEA-STD-1010 and learn how to detect counterfeit components firsthand.

For those seeking to prepare for the IDEA-ICE-3000 Professional Inspector Certification Exam, EPTAC offers IDEA-STD-1010 Essentials, an in-depth program that educates you on how to navigate and apply the most widely used standard on counterfeit components in the electronics industry.

IDEA-STD-1010 Essentials is designed to develop an in-depth knowledge of the IDEA-STD-1010 "Acceptability of Electronic Components Distributed in the Open Market" standard and a thorough understanding of its contents, application and use in the component inspection counterfeit detection process. In addition, this course provides numerous opportunities to review real-time counterfeit examples in a hands-on environment, where the student can apply his or her knowledge of the standard to actual specimens.

This two-day program is offered to Original Component Manufacturers (OCMs), Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), Contract Manufacturers (CMs)/Electronics Manufacturing Service Providers (EMSs) and Authorized (Franchised)/Open Market component distributors at all levels of inspection and quality assurance, including technicians and referees involved in the issues surrounding electronic component counterfeit mitigation.

Please feel free to contact me to discuss in greater detail.
