IPC 7711/IPC 7721 Certified IPC Trainer (CIT) Course
IPC 7711/21, Rework, Modification, and Repair of Electronic Assemblies, is a widely used standard that offers a wealth of industry-approved techniques on through-hole and surface-mount technology (SMT) rework as well as land, conductor, and laminate repair. It covers procedural requirements, tools, materials, and methods for removing and replacing conformal coatings, surfact-mount, and through-hole components. The standard also includes procedures for repairing and modifying boards and assemblies.
Certification in this program gives you the skills you need to restore operation of expensive electronic assemblies, which can reduce the costs and waste associated with scrapping flawed boards and assemblies. The IPC 7711/21 Certified IPC Trainer (CIT) course provides individuals with a portable credential that represents their understanding of the IPC 7711/21.
IPC 7711/7721 Certified IPC Trainer (CIT) course is built on a train-the-trainer instructional model. Upon completion of the course, trainers will know the technical guidelines of IPC-7711/21 and have demonstrated the proficiency necessary to perform rework and repair at the expert level. IPC 7711/21 registered instructors are formally recognized and certified by IPC and given the instructional materials required to conduct the modularized operator-training program. Prospective students should have experience not only in rework and repair, but ideally in training as well.
