IPC J-STD-001 Course

This course consists of five modules and is the preeminent standard for electronics assembly manufacturing. The first module is a prerequisite for all other modules and is the all-lecture component of the certification.

Upon successful completion of the first module, students then begin the hands-on modules in the soldering lab. Students will use a practice board and then a final circuit board project to demonstrate skills of circuit board assembly and acceptable solder workmanship.

It is the student's responsibility to attend each class meeting. Classroom attendance is required in order to test and receive certification in that module.

Each student will receive: IPC Examination, Specialist Handbook, Soldering Kit and an Official IPC Serialized Certificate (upon successful examination).

Topics include:

Module 1: Specification Review (Mandatory)
