Understanding the New MIL-STD-810G Change Notice

It can be a challenge keeping up with the ever-evolving requirements of MIL-STD-810: Test Method Standard for Environmental Engineering Considerations and Laboratory Tests. The first change notice to version 810G is now out and includes significant revisions, both to climatic and dynamic test methods. The course will include the new information on additional guidance in combining procedures, an almost total rewrite of mechanical shock, and many other interesting points, including a greatly expanded section on the Life Cycle Environmental Profile (LCEP ).

Bring your questions to this three-day course, in which instructor Chris Peterson will explain the rationale and impact of the coming revisions.

This course is also available as custom location training at your facility.

Jon Wilson, instructor, iest Chris Peterson
Christine Peterson has served on the editing committee of the MIL-STD-810 working group for revisions F and G and has worked with companies implementing the test methods worldwide. She also has chaired the International Organization for Standardization Technical Committee (ISO/TC) 108 Subcommittee 6, Vibration and several IEST Working Groups.

Chris Peterson did an excellent job with the class. She did so well at figuring out what we needed and geared the class material accordingly. Her deep understanding of the material was extremely helpful in reaching our future goals. I can’t say enough good things about Chris and the class. Thanks again!
