   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
