The SAE AS5553 Standard was created in response to the volume of counterfeit electronic parts in the aerospace supply chain.

The class includes sections on counterfeit parts risk mitigation methods in electronic design and parts management, supplier management, procurement, part verification, and material control. It also includes a section on response strategies when counterfeit parts are suspected and/or discovered.

The employees who received their certificates of completion are:

"We at NJMET are committed to professional development and staying on top of the changing field of counterfeit detection," said Joseph Federico, "The AS5553 Standard and Training Certification is important in the industry and to us. NJMET is proud to be a member of SAE International.”
