About the Course
Today, +/-35 volts is a realistic ESD threshold so that DoD professionals must be aware of and become trained in conducting work station area certification in support of the DoD ESD program.
Both DoD and NASA are implementing procedures in the handling of Class 0A devices (<125 volts, HBM) to insure that materials are validated for conformance.
A full ANSI/ESD S20.20-2014 program requires certification of work stations in addition to Material Validation and Verification for Supplier compliance.
In a laboratory environment, RMV conducts "hands on" and computerized instrumentation software for DoD agencies, Prime Contractors and Suppliers.
Each participant will learn how to conduct assessments and certification of workstations and will participate in conducting proper measurements and troubleshooting work areas to insure compliance.
The training will be reinforced by hands on measurements. Each team member will be schooled in the proper protocols and given special templates for use within your facility.
DoD personnel should be capable of conducting internal assessments for ESD practices so that your agency will be able to perform well in audits. In this manner, each audit will be instrument driven.
Some topics not carried by others and are of particular importance today range from supplier non-compliance and suspect counterfeiting of ESD products and materials.
Due to the fact that products have been placed in quarantine, launches have been delayed and product failures with satellites have been identified, we will demonstrate the proper testing protocols for Incoming Inspection, Periodic Verification and Field Testing that will support you in your efforts to better manage your Supplier and Subcontractor during periodic or informal audits.
As a coauthor of the ESD Packaging & Materials S20.20 Standard (ANSI/ESD S541), the Aerospace and Defense sector has experienced an upsurge of supplier non-conformance and counterfeit products.
Lack of in-house validation of materials and prima facie acceptance of supplier specifications from catalogs is another cause for failures on the assembly line and in the field.
With our Subject Matter Expertise (SME) in ESD Materials and Product Testing, Bob Vermillion, iNARTE Certified ESD & Product Safety Engineer and SME Electrostatics for NASA & DoD, will train team members on the current and proper testing and evaluation of materials to meet or exceed current requirements set forth by NASA and the DoD and in compliance with ANSI/ESD S20.20-2014.
Participants will receive customized ANSI/ESD S20.20 Certification instruction.
The evaluation of Supplier products and materials will be taught by a thorough understanding of which equipment is best for the application.
The RMV "Hands On" Training is far superior to drafting off work of others or by use of product supplier information techniques that have not been validated by a third party.
Class size is limited to 12 persons. For company training at your location, please call or email for pricing on a group discount.
