Introduction to Climatics Testing
Instructor: David Gibbons and Ben Shank

The course will provide you with a basic understanding of climatic testing. While climatic testing covers broad aspects within the industry, this course will provide an introduction to the physics of environments; a brief history of climatic test requirements; techniques to derive climatic requirements based on field data vs analysis; tailoring strategies for climatic tests of large systems and small components; an understanding of failure modes due to applied environments; an introduction to climatic test facilities and how to create environments; and practical applications of test methods.  This course is designed to be a stepping stone leading to the more focused Climatics Testing Learning Path and MIL-STD-810H training course.

Selecting the Right Accelerometer
nstructor: Steven Essenmacher

 The course will focus on providing guidelines for the selection and application of accelerometers that are used in the measurement of shock and vibration. The course is based upon the IEST Recommend Practice (RP) document IEST-RP-DTE011: Mechanical Shock and Vibration Accelerometer Selection. The focus will be on the practical use of the devices and will act as an introductory course on accelerometers.

Introduction to HALT/HASS
Instructor: Julio Pulido

Learn how to expose potential design weaknesses and manufacturing defects of your products. HALT (Highly Accelerated Life Testing) and HASS (Highly Accelerated Stress Screening) are two methods for improving the reliability and quality of products. Highly Accelerated Life Test combines extreme temperature cycling and repetitive-shock/vibration for the ultimate in accelerated reliability testing. HALT and HASS subject a product to a series of overstressed, effectively forcing product weak links to emerge by accelerating fatigue.
