Why You Want Your Technician to be IPC Certified

Categories: Community, DIY Auto Tips

At UpFix we guarantee that every technician repairing your automotive parts is IPC certified. But what exactly does that mean and why is it important?

IPC – Association Connecting Electronics Industries

In 1957 the Institute for Printed Circuits was founded with the goal of standardizing production and repair of electronic equipment. As the technology continued to evolve and more electronic components were developed, the Institute went through a few name changes until 1999 when it was renamed “IPC – Association Connecting Electronics Industries”.
