IPC Certification Levels

What certification level do you want to achieve working in the electronics industry? IPC currently provides four levels of certification to the IPC Standards for individuals working in the electronics industry. Depending on your experience within the industry, you can become certified at the highest level, a Master IPC Trainer (MIT), or at the operator/entry level as a Certified IPC Specialist (CIS). Choosing the right level of certification for you is important. Becoming certified allows individuals to provide keen insight to your company on IPC standards and how they are applied within manufacturing. The certification provides industry recognition not only to yourself but also to your company. Speaking the same language is critical to the success of companies within the electronics industry.
