We hope you and your loved ones are staying healthy and safe. After carefully analyzing significant global cost increases over the last two years, we find it necessary to implement a slight increase in the price of all IPC certification programs. The increase will take effect on January 1, 2022. We have worked hard to minimize the price increase while continuing to provide the very best products and services for the electronics manufacturing industry.
Online Certification Exams: Effective January 1, 2022, the registration cost for all CIS programs utilizing online exams will increase by $10. For example, the member cost of the CIS 610 program utilizing online exams will increase from $65 to $75. The registration cost for all CIT programs utilizing online exams will increase by $40. For example, the non-member price for a J-STD-001 CIT Certification will increase from $600 to $640.
Online Print Exams: Effective January 1, 2022, the price of the online print exam will increase by $40. For example, the non-member price for a J-STD-001 CIT Certification will increase from $600 to $640.
Online Print Exams: Effective January 1, 2022, the price of the online print exam will increase by $15 for each CIS student and by $45 for each CIT student.
Online Proctoring: In response to ongoing adoption and demand, IPC will continue to offer Online Proctoring as a certification option. IPC will continue to subsidize the cost of online proctored exams and will not be increasing the registration costs in 2022. Below is a helpful table outlining the new costs for the CIS/CIT/CSE Certification programs, effective January 1, 2022.

(AFI) which manufactures electronic fuel injection systems and IC Connectors for 2 & 3 Wheeler’s for the Indian market, and Mercury Heatex Pvt. Ltd., which is manufacturing Heat Exchangers for ACs. One more company, BGSB Concrete Solutions Pvt Ltd, also completed the construction activity in their plot.
Till now, 20 companies have invested in the Cluster and have reserved 28.42 acres of land out of 30.62 acres saleable industrial plots in Phase-I.
ELCINA Bhiwadi SPV is now planning to develop a “Common Facility Centre” in the Cluster under the EMC 2.0 Scheme of MeitY. The proposed facilities in the CFC are planned with the objective of supporting the Cluster members and local ESDM industry and enhance their competitiveness. The CFC will function as a Service Provider to assist the Cluster members in innovating and developing new products, producing value-added products, enhance productivity, and meet global product requirements. Apart from major investment in Test & Measurement Lab, SPV will also establish a CoE/Incubation Centre and Centre for Start-Ups/ Training Centre as two other supporting components in the proposed CFC.
It is a matter of great pride for ELCINA that our EMC at Bhiwadi will play an important role in the Government of India’s ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’ and ‘Digital India’ initiatives.

Wiring harness is essentially the nervous system in electrical/ electronic circuits and finds varied applications ranging across the Automotive, Defense, Aerospace, Medical, Telecommunication, ICT, and Consumer durables sector. The domestic wiring harness industry has expanded over the recent years backed by the growth of India as a global automotive manufacturing hub. Wiring harness manufacturers work closely with the OEMs to develop harness systems for various vehicle models and variants.
Requirements and Acceptance for Cable and Wire Harness Assemblies is a requirement for class 3 products, mostly used in the automotive, defense, aerospace, medical sector. Staff employed in Cable & Wire Harness Assembly companies requires knowledge & re-skilling.
IPC India is working to organize the competition through a committee and support from member volunteer experts from the industry. The task before the competing participants is to prepare a proper cable & wire harnesses within the allotted time frame.
Members/Non-Members can also organize such “Cable & Wire Harness Assemblies Competition” within the organization with support from IPC India to promote skills and motivate staffs.’
Since 2013, the IPC India PCB Design Contest has received recognition from PCB Designers & Manufacturers.
Since PCB is an important part of electronics and India is looking at more PCB design & manufacturing, the competition has received an overwhelming response from the Indian electronics industry.
IPC India PCB Design Contest helps to put the skills of PCB Designers to test and allow them to compete with the best in the industry.
