EMC Testing Technician
Online Training Program
Confidently Create, Perform and Document Electromagnetic Compatibility Tests
A Guide to Full-Compliance, Pre-Compliance, and EMC Troubleshooting
Instructor: Andy Eadie
What You'll Learn:
EMC testing is an important step in qualifying the emissions and susceptibility performance of an electronic product.
This course delivers a start to finish process to become a competent EMC technician. We cover creating fully-compliant and pre-compliant test setups, documenting tests and operating test equipment properly to ensure accuracy.
As an EMC technician, it is important not just to run the software to obtain a pass or fail. It's important to understand the physics and rationale behind each test so that we can avoid making mistakes and provide valuable test data.
Key topics covered include:
- The equipment needed to perform each test and how to set up and use it
- How to design and operate a compliant or pre-compliant EMC test facility
- Become confident using RF test equipment and measurement units
- How to create test plans and reports
- How to analyze and present test data
- How to setup and run radiated/ conducted emissions tests
- How to setup and run continuous and transient immunity tests
- How to navigate standards and regulatory agencies
- How to ensure conformity is maintained after final approvals
- How to perform system level EMC troubleshooting for emissions + immunity tests
