IPC Training Certification
Training Certification is an ideal way to train and verify competency in key subject areas, like ESD Control, Lead Free Soldering, Component ID, Safety, and Acceptance Standards. These multi-media based resources include everything a trainer needs to instruct, test and certify that their operators have completed a course successfully. All students with a grade of 70% or better on the final examinations qualify for IPC Training Certification. Please see the sample certificate (.pdf) which allows for user-customization of student name, instructor, and date of completion. There is no expiration / renewal date for any Training Certification program, and they may be administered by anyone in your company.
As an operator-level credential, Training Certification demonstrates mastery of the specific theory and knowledge contained in the course, as evidence of competency for ISO training requirements through an industry-developed training program. Training Certification does not qualify instructors or students to teach or interpret IPC specifications, or assure proficiency in the physical skills required to create products to the requirements of IPC specifications. (See our list of IPC Standards-Based Certification Programs.)
Like all IPC Video / DVD, OVT and Computer-Based (CD) training programs, Training Certification is available for unlimited students per the particular licensing structure chosen. (Please see our Permissible Use page for details.) These media-based training solutions are created in cooperation with volunteer industry experts – to ensure technical accuracy – and are free from commercial bias.
