IPC J-STD-001, Requirements for Soldered Electrical and Electronic Assemblies, has emerged as the preeminent authority for electronics assembly manufacturing worldwide. The standard describes materials, methods, and verification criteria for producing high-quality soldered leaded and lead-free interconnections. It emphasizes process control and establishes industry-consensus requirements for a broad range of electrical connections. The IPC J-STD-001 training program consists of both hand soldering as well as learning the material in the J-STD-001 specification related to various assembly methods.

The IPC J-STD-001 training program focuses on the knowledge and hand skills that individuals need to produce high-quality soldered interconnections. Certification helps enhance individual skills and performance. The IPC J-STD-001 Certified IPC Specialist (CIS) Course provides individuals with a portable credential that recognizes their soldering skills and understanding of this internationally recognized standard.

COURSE OVERVIEW

The IPC J-STD-001 Certified IPC Trainer (CIT) course is built on a train-the-trainer instructional model. The training program uses soldering labs and demonstrations, as well as classroom discussion to teach the standard criteria. IPC J-STD-001 certified instructor candidates who successfully complete the soldering workmanship portions of the course and the certification examinations are given instructional materials needed for training operators. The IPC J-STD-001 training program is design as a portable credential that goes with the employee. The J-STD-001 certification program credential is valid for a two year period of time. Potential candidates for this IPC training program should have at least a 5th grade reading comprehension level.

BEST Inc. instruction is different from most training centers as we test on inspection skills as part of Module 5. Students are shown various PCBs, as well as terminals, and then are asked to identify defects.

Please note that previous soldering experience is recommended. 

COURSE OBJECTIVE

- Demonstrate lab soldering that meets the minimum requirements of the IPC J-STD-001 certification program requirements

- Be able to reference the IPC J-STD-001 standard

- Explain IPC terminology and definitions

- Earn an overall score of 70% or better on the IPC written examinations in order for passage of the IPC J-STD-001 certification.
