Training

NASA Workmanship Standards provide uniform engineering and technical requirements for processes, procedures, practices, and methods that have been endorsed as standard for NASA programs and projects.

The RITF Training Facility provides the associated training to contractor personnel and civil servants alike.

The RITF trains approximately 1200 to 1500 students per year.


Cabling, Harness, and Crimp, Wire Wrap

Instructors utilize lectures, demonstrations, and student application to develop required knowledge and skills for soldering and crimping stranded wires, and cable fabrication.
Length: 40 hours


Conformal Coating & Staking

Instructors utilize lectures, demonstrations, and student application to develop required knowledge and skills for conformal coating and component and wire harness staking.
