Courses currently being developed
Global Product/Machine Regulations
This is aimed at provided management
and regulatory engineering staff with an in depth
knowledge of global compliance regulations and schemes
such as CE, CB Scheme, UL/CSA, TUV
Designing to Comply with Product
A technically comprehensive course
aimed at providing design engineers with the know
how to understand safety standards and design for
compliance with them, thereby avoiding costly re-spins
and time to market delays.
Directive: CE Marking for Users & Suppliers of
Machines and Safety Components
This course provides an overview of the legislative
position on CE Marking of Machinery/Safety Components,
including the Low Voltage & EMC Directives. It
also covers the technical and procedural aspects involved
in Machinery Directive assessments, including testing
On completing this course the participant
will be able to:
- Structure and implement a CE Marking
- Understand the technical requirements
of the Machinery & related EU
- Understand the legislation with
regard to Machinery & related EU
- Interpret compliance requirements/standards
and implement them during
design, development, manufacture, operation and
maintenance of machinery.

for Design Engineers
Our training courses provide the design engineer and
manager with the working knowledge of standards and
compliance requirements to define their product development
policy. The courses provide a good working knowledge
of EMC so that the engineer can incorporate the EMC
design features necessary to minimise the cost of
meeting the EMC Directive. The course covers standards,
testing, shielding, cabling, pcb design and filtering.
Fields and Human Health
This course covers aspects from the basics to interpretation
of the guideline standards. Topics include:
- The latest information on EU legislation
and international standards organisations.
- The characteristics of EMFs over
the electromagnetic spectrum and typical sources.
- The basis of the guideline limits.
- An overview of research activities
into subtle biological effects.
- An understanding of the measuring
techniques and the use of measurement equipment.
- An ability to identify hazards.
- Measurement techniques.
- Mitigation techniques.

in The Manufacturing Environment
The control of electrostatic levels during the manufacturing
process is an essential part of quality assurance.
It is of paramount importance to ensure good production
yields and the prevention of latent failures which
will result in product returns. The increasing level
of sophistication of IC technology is increasing the
potential susceptibility of devices. As the effects
of electrostatic damage may not be immediately obvious
staff awareness and protection systems can deteriorate.
The effective control of ESD in the manufacturing
environment requires the continual motivation of staff
Increasingly stringent customer requirements
for high product reliability at component as well
as at system level pose new challenges to quality
conscious manufacturers. Product design, manufacture,
test handling and service all have ESD impacts of
ESD scenarios and measuring techniques.
This one day course provides a comprehensive
coverage of the subject and will include practical
demonstrations of ESD scenarios and measuring techniques.
On completing the course the participants
- Thoroughly understand the generation
and action of ESD events.
- Understand the protection philosophy
and design of electrostatic protected areas.
- Understand the measurement
- Understand the application
of appropriate quality control measures.
