IPC Electronics Workforce Training

Do you need consistent and scalable training for your front-line operators?  The Electronic Assembly Operator course delivers the foundational knowledge needed to get your new hires off to a running start. If specific roles within your organization need more in-depth instruction about utilizing and implementing IPC Standards, we offer add-on courses that deliver a working knowledge of J-STD-001 and IPC-A-610. The IPC EDGE learning platform allows trainers to easily monitor trainee progress, provide support when necessary as well as identify the strongest learners.

In a recent article in SMT007, David Hernandez and Carlos Plaza discuss the vision driving the development of IPC Electronics Workforce Training as well as offering a sneak peek into what comes next. 

PCB Design

IPC offers a full curriculum of PCB Design courses. Engineers and technicians with limited experience can take our Design I and Design II courses, while more experienced personnel can focus on specific applications in courses like Advanced Packaging, Extreme Environments or Military and Aerospace. These courses meet twice a week for six weeks and provide opportunities for participants to receive direct instruction and exchange ideas with the class.

An electrical engineer that recently took the Advanced Packaging course commented, "Just wanted to let you know that I've gone through a few designs at work and I couldn't have down it without you. I've used just about everything you taught in class and I continue to look back at my notes to remember some of the more tricky stuff."

Professional Development

IPC’s professional development courses provide extensive technical and business knowledge. PCB Defect Analysis and Troubleshooting is the seminal course in understanding how to diagnose and correct manufacturing defects in the PCB fabrication process. Our Certified Electronics Program Manager course covers a wide variety of business and technical topics that are critical to success in the EMS industry. Contracting with the Customer has a narrower focus on writing contracts that are profitable and mitigate risk.
