About IPC

IPC was founded in 1957 as the Institute for printed circuits. As more electronics assembly companies became involved with the association, the name was changed to the institute for interconnecting and packaging electronic circuits.   IPC, now called as the perfect complement to our name because it expresses IPC’s mission of networking and technical exchange as well as emphasizing the importance of the printed circuit board. IPC represents all facets of the industry including design, printed board manufacturing, and electronics assembly and test. 

Mission Statement of IPC

IPC is a global trade association dedicated to increase the competitive excellence and financial success of its members who are participants in the electronics industry. In pursuit of these objectives, IPC devotes resources to management improvement and technology enhancement programs, the creation of relevant standards, protection of the environment, and pertinent government relations. IPC encourages the active participation of all its members in these activities and commits to full cooperation with all related organizations.

The use of pencil and paper exams may only be utilized in specific cases where the use of the online exam format is not possible due to lack of infrastructure, ITAR compliance, or other legal restrictions.
