Hunter Technology to host IPC EMS Program Management Training

Electronic manufacturing solutions provider, Hunter Technology, will host the west coast training session of the
IPC’s “Essentials of EMS Program Management” in September at their facility in Santa Clara, CA.

Developed with input from the IPC EMS Management Council, the training and certification program specifically tailors topics such as: operations, finance, contracts, time management and leadership for individuals whose jobs depend on having an understanding of all aspects of the EMS business.  Participants will gain a broadened perspective and appreciation of the many responsibilities of an EMS management executive.  Upon completion, candidates will be certified in EMS Program Management and will be entitled to use the "CEPM" designation after their names.

In the sessions held at Hunter, students will spend three valuable days building upon the business concepts covered in Part I, a self-paced segment, by applying them to specific EMS situations. Through interactive lectures, group discussions and exercises with other students, they continue to expand their knowledge of EMS program and operations management. After completing the segment, participants have a well-rounded understanding of the industry and are prepared for the real situations they will face every day on the job.

In addition to hosting the event, Hunter will engage 10 of their own employees in the EMS Program Management Training and Certification Program giving them the highest number of certified program managers in California.  Joe O’Neil, president of Hunter Technology, remarks, “As an active member of the IPC, we’re excited to be both hosting and participating in the EMS management program.   This certification clearly sets apart the professionals in the industry from those with lesser experience, training and knowledge.  The benefits to our customers are enormous.  With more tools at their disposal, our staff can provide customers with faster answers and more flexibility. ”

TheEssentials of EMS Program Management” course will be held September 17, 18 and 20 at Hunter Technology, located at 2921 Corvin Drive, Santa Clara, CA 95051.  For more information on this course and other additional training, contact Susan Filz by email at or :  847-597-2884.
