May 18, 2005 -The Standards Technology Group Inc. (STG) and SEMI today announced a partnership to provide SEMI standards training and online courses to the semiconductor industry. Under the terms of the agreement, SEMI standards courses will be designed and presented by STG and marketed by SEMI. Seminars are now available for GEM300 and EDA standards.
On-line courses will be available starting in July and will initially cover 200mm and 300mm factory automation standards (E4, E5, E37.1, E40, E84, E87, E90, E94), EDA standards (E125, E132, E134), and the EPT standard (E116).
“Over the past 30 years, SEMI has published more than 700 standards for the semiconductor and related microelectronics industries,” said Bettina Weiss, SEMI’s director for International Standards and MEMS. “SEMI is pleased to be working with STG to provide educational courses that have the potential to transform standards beyond traditional reference material, making them easier to learn and readily accessible to the industry.”
STG’s educational programs will include traditional face-to-face two and three-day courses. However, STG will focus much of its effort on developing a suite of on-line standards courses and reference resources. SEMI member companies qualify for a 10% discount on all courses taken.
The courses are designed so that users learn at their own pace, with reviews and exams conducted at appropriate times to determine when more study is needed.
STG, Williston, VT, is an organization of industry experts dedicated to developing semiconductor education material and courses in the context of the SEMI standards and IC factory design requirements.
