Company

We understand that you are an innovator. You're constantly looking for new ways to do your job better: ways to discover, analyze, and create. You are the driving force behind the industry and the key to a brighter, more dynamic future.

We are your toolbox. Our mission is to give you the skills you need to excel via next-generation online training, full-color manuals, and live semiconductor training courses presented by industry experts. We offer public courses in various categories, including technology introductions, yield/reliability improvement, test engineering, packaging, and wafer processing and integration.

We unlock your company's potential through in-house training and learning management. Our customizable in-house courses can directly address your company's needs. Or, for an even more flexible solution, Semitracks' learning management team can contribute, create, edit, and package multimedia content into a custom online training database for your company.

We also provide free reference material and Facebook/LinkedIn pages where engineers, scientists, and technicians can discuss problems and issues they face in their day-to-day jobs.

Chris Henderson, Tom Moore, Ed Cole, and Dan Barton founded Semitracks in 2001. Their vision: to bring affordable education to the semiconductor industry based on expert knowledge and people working in the industry who understood the problems semiconductor scientists, engineers, and technicians face every day. In 2005, Semitracks launched its online training initiative, bringing cost-effective training right to the engineer's desktop. Whether it's face-to-face training, webinars, manuals, online training, or one-on-one consultation, we're here to help you understand the semiconductor industry and your role in it.

A Message from the President

Christopher Henderson

Semitracks offers three basic avenues for education and training: public short courses, in-house short courses, and online training. Our public courses range from one to four days. Our in-house courses can be customized to a certain extent for your company/organization. We also construct custom online training systems, and have done so for a number of companies, including: CSR, ON Semiconductor, Samsung, LTX-Credence, DCG Systems and others. We cover a wide variety of semiconductor-related topics, including: design, technology, processing, packaging, reliability, test, failure analysis, ESD, MEMS, optoelectronics, focused ion beam technology, and others.

Semitracks is committed to a philosophy of contracting with subject matter experts to provide our training. All of our instructors have advanced degrees in their respective fields, and actively work in those fields as well. We also require our speakers be experienced speakers. All of our speakers have presented numerous papers and tutorials, so they are familiar with public speaking. They have also written numerous papers and other technical documents, so they are familiar with creating well-written material. In this way, they can competently convey their knowledge to the student.

Semitracks is also committed to the principle of cross-training. Understanding other disciplines within the field makes for a more valuable employee. A knowledgeable employee makes for a more competitive company. We encourage people to take courses in topics outside of their current job assignment. Individuals and organizations who sign up for our online training have access to the entire website, so they can learn about a wide variety of subjects, not just subjects directly associated with their current jobs.

We believe that a commitment to education is a critical component to the success of an organization in today’s rapidly changing world. We are committed to providing the most current information to your organization and providing courses on the most current topics in the industry. We are also committed to providing training on developing technologies as their bodies of knowledge stabilize. We want to be your source for education and training in this exciting and dynamic industry.

As we like to say, come and learn from the experts!

Christopher Henderson
