Time away from the manufacturing floor for production or rework technicians is an opportunity cost that is not easily retrieved. Many times with this mindset any training done offsite or even onsite is perceived by some as time “wasted” not maintaining manufacturing or repair depot output. Therefore, as many types of training have moved to an online format, soldering, IPC training as well as other electronics manufacturing training is being “pushed” in this same direction. BEST Inc. has the ability to meet these needs in select cases.
The types of electronics manufacturing training can be broken down into two separate categories. The first category would be that of “discrimination”, specification or background learning. The second category would be that of hand skills training. While the first category may lend itself readily to online training the second category in our 20 plus experience does not lend itself well to online training.
The type of electronics manufacturing training that is a discrimination, QC, specification or background skills testing may include all or some of the following:
IPC –A-610 Inspection of PWB assemblies
IPC-A-620 Inspection of wire harnesses and cables
MSD device handling
Various specification outlines
Online training services offered by BEST Inc. can either be standards training, when allowed, or custom training based on specific customer training requirements. BEST Inc. training staff can work with you on your specific requirements.
The IPC online training or specific electronics assembly training offered by BEST Inc. can be administered through a variety of methods. One of the simplest methods, which allows students from multiple locations to be trained at the same time. There are other online training platforms available where students can learn and be tested on the material at their own leisure.
