Are you aware of IPC Certification? In the attached video, Master Instructor for Best Incorporated, Chris Roberson, gives a brief overview of how to obtain IPC Certification. He describes the certification as a way to train people to “read, navigate, and apply several of the standards of IPC documents.”
It’s an international program developed by the IPC – Association Connecting Electronics Industries, a global trade association representing all facets of the electronic interconnection industry. This certification program provides standardized training and testing to ensure that electronic assemblies are being produced in accordance with IPC’s quality standards.
Chris mentions that some classes are lecture classes while others combine hands-on elements with lectures. To obtain certification, training is required. Be ready to take an exam after you complete training. You need a minimum score of 80% or higher. Depending on the type of certification, there may be a written or practical exam.
This field is good for those with technical skills and the willingness to learn. It’s also great for people wanting a long-term career in the electronics industry. Good luck with your certification.
