IPC-J-STD-001 Requirements for Soldered Electrical and Electronic Assemblies Training and Certification Program

IPC-J-STD-001G CIT (Trainer)

Creating Excellence in Electronics Assembly

The IPC J-STD-001 Requirements for Soldered Electrical and Electronic Assemblies has emerged as the preeminent authority for electronics assembly manufacturing. The standard describes materials, methods and verification criteria for producing high quality soldered interconnections. The standard emphasizes process control and sets industry-consensus requirements for a broad range of electronic products.

IPC received hundreds of requests from companies worldwide to support this critical standard with a formal training program that recognizes individuals as qualified instructors and provides them with teaching materials. Now, IPC has an industry developed and approved comprehensive, hands-on solder training and certification program based on J-STD-001 that gives companies all the tools they need to increase employee skills and performance.

| How the Certification Program Works

IPC’s J-STD-001 Training and Certification Program is built on a train-the-trainer instructional model. A company seeking to create an IPC Licensed J-STD-001 Certified IPC Trainer sends their candidate to anIPC Licensed J-STD-001 Certification Center. The training program uses soldering labs and demonstrations as well as classroom instruction to teach the standard criteria.

Certified IPC Trainer candidates who successfully complete the soldering workmanship portions of the course and the certification examination are given the instructional materials needed for training Application Specialists.

Instructor training requires the use of lead-free solder for at least 50% of the workmanship projects. The type of solder alloy used for application specialist training is optional, based on the needs of the company.

| Program Benefits

TThose interested in company-wide quality assurance initiatives have an IPC-sponsored program to support their commitment to continuous operations and product improvement. IPC recognition sends a strong message to customers that your company is serious about implementing J-STD-001.

All IPC J-STD-001 Certified IPC Trainers receive the instructional materials for teaching the Application Specialist training course, including:

    • A CD-ROM with full color visuals covering all aspects of the standard and training course, student handbook files for royalty-free printing, and all reports and forms required for conducting Application Specialist training.
    • An instructor guide for conducting all the Application Specialist training modules.
    • Open and closed book examinations for all the Application Specialist Training Modules.
    • Copies of the J-STD-001 through 006, a copy of the J-STD-001 Handbook (IPC-HDBK-001) and a copy of IPC T-50J, Terms and Definitions for Interconnecting and Packaging Electronic Circuits.
    • A student handbook for use in the classroom portions of the course.
    • Artwork for soldering test boards. (Certification Centers will provide standardized test boards for Certified IPC Trainer candidates. Test kits based on this artwork are recommended for Application Specialist soldering demonstrations).
    • Official serialized IPC certificate of course completion.

The term for a J-STD-001 Certified IPC Trainer is two years. Re-certification training is conducted at the Licensed Certification Centers.

| Who Should Become an IPC J-STD-001 Certified IPC Trainer?

Assembly process engineers, quality assurance supervisors, training managers and others responsible for the quality and reliability of soldered electronic assemblies are excellent candidates for the program.

Any company that uses J-STD-001 or is considering its adoption can use the program to address the training requirement identified in the standard.

Certified IPC Trainer candidates must have excellent hand soldering skills and ideally training skills as well.
