·         Fully understand the need to use anti-static work wear while at work and/or in the vicinity of high ESD risk products.

Quality Management System (QMS)

     Meeting customer requirements is important in any industry. Quality standards allow for more effective and efficient delivery of services an products. This course gives an understanding of QMS and its importance in organizations.

Course Objectives:

At the end of the course, the participant is expected to:
·         Understand the principles of quality management system;
·         Know the roles of ISO in setting quality standards;
·         Enumerate the requirements of ISO 90001;
·         Appreciate his role in ensuring that quality standards are met in his organization, specifically in his department.

Cleanroom Standard Operating Procedures

     Electronics manufacturing industries need to protect the products that theyassemble and manufacture. The susceptibility of the products to external, internal and latent damages require a cleanroom environment to ensure that quality requirements are not sacrificed. This course prepares the participant in electronics manufacturing cleanroom environment by a discussion of the cleanroom protocols and simulation of the environment and practices.

Course Objectives:

At the end of the course, the participant is expected to:
·         Understand the importance of a cleanroom setup in electronicscompanies;
·         Learn about contamination and its various forms;
·         Identify the different sources of contaminants and how to control them;
·         Enumerate cleanroom protocols and standard operating procedures;
·         Demonstrate the proper way of wearing a cleanroom apparel.

Institute for Printed Circuits (IPC) Standards

     IPC, the Association Connecting Electronics Industries, is an organization whose aim is to standardize the assembly and production requirements of electronics equipment and assemblies. The participant is exposed to these requirements to ensure understanding and cautious operations when assigned in the industry.

Course Objectives:

At the end of the course, the participant is expected to:
·         Identify the basic inspection criteria for electronics assembly;
·         Exercise caution in the assembly operations;
·         Learn about product acceptability requirements set by IPC from acceptance criteria to hardware installation.

Electronics Assembly

     The process of assembly requires thorough training and preparation to make caution, efficiency and effective become a habit and mindset. This course prepares the participant to simulate the assembly process through an actual exposure to microscope and torque driver instruments with emphasis on the right steps and approaches to achieve high productivity.

Course Objectives:

At the end of the course, the participant is expected to:
·         Enumerate the types of electronic components and classify them either as passive or active;
·         Understand the step-by-step PCB assembly process;
·         Demonstrate the proper way of using a torque driver and identify the right type for different requirements;
·         Understand the components and parts of a microscope;
·         Demonstrate the proper use of microscope in relation to the assembly process;
·         Show the proper maintenance and care of a microscope.

Basic Hand Soldering

     Manual hand soldering can be inevitable in the electronics manufacturing service industry. It is important to know the right procedures of hand soldering to meet productivity requirements and minimize, if not eliminate, occurrence of defective parts or products. In this course, the participant will be exposed to actual hands-on session on soldering and desoldering in preparation to assembly work.

Course Objectives:

At the end of the course, the participant is expected to:
·         Understand  the principles behind hand soldering;
·         Identify the different materials needed in the soldering process;
·         Perform the correct hand soldering procedure;

·         Acquire confidence in using a hand soldering instrument prior to actual work.

AMI’s Contribution in Philippine Employment

In preparation for the State of the Nation Address of President Benigno S. Aquino III last July 28, AMI was featured in IBC 13. The feature focused on how the company has contributed to the improvement of employment in the semiconductor and electronics industry. The team was headed by its field reporter Ms. Sheila Frias who has seen the actual training classes, in both lecture and laboratory sessions. Graduates of the program were interviewed and they shared their experiences and learnings during and after their classes. They highlighted the emphasis of the learning service on the importance of work ethics and values in the workplace. These has made them different compared to the other production operators. They also mentioned their preparation on the technical side through their exposure in soldering and inspection as well as the training on organizational skills like 5S and quality management orientation.

Two facilitators, Mr. Joseph Pacao and Mr. Jake Fabregar, were asked about their role in molding the minds and hands of the learners. Mr. Pacao mentioned that his area is on Electronics Assembly and Soldering. He makes sure that the learners are familiar with the equipment that will be used in the process. He also reiterated that AMI training ensures that during the production operators’ first day of work, they will no longer be surprised about what they will see in the workplace environment and processes. Mr. Fabregar, on the other hand, stated that the learners are exposed to relevant skills test that allows the learners to improve on their comprehension and attention to details. The training allows the production operators to be exposed to work instructions and simulates the required process. This timed exercise is a preparation to make the learners become aware of quality and productivity.

AMI continues to train high school graduates in the TESDA-approved program on Electronics Production Line Back-end Operation Level 1 Program. This is in addition to the other standard and customized programs designed to meet individual customer requirements.
