ASTA Technology is the sole provider of accredited European Space Agency (ESA) training in the UK, and one of a limited number in Europe. It is owned by the University of Portsmouth.
We offer electronic assembly and inspection training to ensure that space technicians and engineers meet the required ESA standards for assembling, maintaining and repairing electronic assemblies that are mission critical in space exploration.
The need for electronic assembly skills training and updating has never been more crucial in maintaining a competitive edge. Increasing European integration is bringing opportunities to secure lucrative contracts for companies with appropriately qualified staff in assembly, inspection and quality assurance.
ASTA team has many years of hi-rel production experience in Europe, the USA, Canada and the Far East. On-site courses have been conducted in Europe, Malaysia, USA and Canada where ESA training is becoming more and more relevant - even for NASA-certified technicians.
