All wiring assemblers are also trained to comply with soldering and inspection per IPC J-STD-001.

VPC is capable of producing to all IPC classes (see class definitions below) depending on the customer's requirements. The customer has the ultimate responsibility for identifying the class to which the assembly is evaluated.

Class 3 -- High Performance Electronic Products
Includes products where continued high performance or performance-on-demand is critical, equipment downtime cannot be tolerated, end-use environment may be uncommonly harsh, and the equipment must function when required, such as life support or other critical systems.
