iNARTE Certification Exam

Exemplar Global-iNARTE Certification Exam

ESD control has been raising more and more concerns in large area such as hard disk industry, electronic assemblies, semiconductor manufacturer and biomedical device companies. A qualified ESD engineer is supposed to be familiar with how to conduct ESD test & measurement, how to use ESD tools, how to do quality control & material evaluation, and so on.

The iNARTE certification is administered by iNARTE in conjunction with the ESD Association aimed for both ESD Engineers and Technicians. This is an internationally recognized, independent validation of professional excellence, according to the guidelines of ISO 17024.
