Unique Course Provides Hands-on Instruction for EMC Compliance Testing

CEDAR PARK, Texas, December 22, 2010 – With its decades of experience in the EMC test chamber industry, it was a natural progression for ETS-Lindgren to share this expertise with others interested in learning how to perform EMC compliance testing. ETS-Lindgren now offers a three day course to do just that. With a unique combination of classroom discussion and practical, hands-on testing in a 3 meter EMC test chamber, course students learn firsthand how to perform radiated and conducted emissions and immunity tests. Testing is performed according to published standards, including ANSI C63.4; FCC Parts 15 and 18; CISPR 11, 16 and 22; IEC 61000-4-3; EN 61000-4-6 and SAE J551, among others. Course instructors are experienced EMC experts with practical lab experience. Not only will students be taught how to perform the test, but they will gain an understanding of the test methodology. Then, they will put what they have learned into practice by taking actual measurements in a 3 meter EMC test chamber. The course will be held at ETS-Lindgren’s world headquarters in Cedar Park, just north of Austin, Texas.

“We all know that time to market is critical in this competitive economy. EMC compliance test time should not be the roadblock that kills a product launch,” said Roger Hatch of ETS-Lindgren. “Unfortunately, this is an all too common scenario. To prevent this, upon completion of this course, students will be prepared to make accurate test measurements the first time and avoid trial and error methods. Even if the testing is not for a product launch, this course is all about being more productive and more competitive – in just three days of intense instruction,” he added.

This course is ideally suited for:

  • EMC engineers or lab technicians who want to expand their knowledge of EMC testing
  • Engineers or lab technicians new to EMC requirements
  • Design engineers and anyone outsourcing their testing who want to know the standards and test methods that will be applied to their products
  • Non-engineers, such as business analysts or trade journalists, who want to understand the fundamentals of EMC testing
  • Anyone preparing their lab for ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation
  • Anyone preparing themselves for the iNARTE® personnel certification exam

The course fee includes a study guide and class notes. The study guide is a valuable reference tool for the student’s lab, while the class notes allow the student to focus on learning – not taking notes. Lodging and lunch each day are also included. Course sizes are designed to be large enough to share and learn from a diversity of work experiences, yet small enough for individual attention. As a special bonus, a complimentary copy of Clayton Paul's book, Introduction to Electromagnetic Compatibility, is provided for each student.

The next course is scheduled for February 15-17, 2011. Click here to learn more and to register.
