Helping Electronics Manufacturers Succeed

Rework, Modification and Repair of Electronic Assemblies Training and Certification Program
Manufacturers and assemblers that want to realize dramatic cost savings by repairing and reworking electronic assemblies and printed circuit boards know the benefits of IPC-7711/7721. This widely used standard offers a wealth of industry-approved techniques on through-hole and surface-mount rework as well as land, conductor and laminate repair. It covers procedural requirements, tools, materials and methods for removing and replacing conformal coatings, surface mount and through-hole components. The standard also includes procedures for repairing and modifying boards and assemblies. In addition, it is now updated with additional support for lead free, BGAs and flex-print repairs.

Why earn IPC-7711/7721 certification?
This outstanding program delivers a flexible, highly skills-oriented training program. Certification in this industry-developed and approved program can give your employees the skills they need to restore operation of expensive electronics assemblies — which in turn can reduce the costs and waste associated with scrapping flawed boards and assemblies. The CIT, CSE and CIS programs provide individuals with a portable credential that represents their understanding of IPC-7711/7721.

Choose from Three Tiers of Instruction
• Certified IPC Application Specialist (CIS) training focuses on information and hand skills for operators charged with restoring function of boards and assemblies. Course fee covers: classroom training and an exam, a copy of the standard and certification.

• Certified Standards Expert (CSE) is a subject matter professional with a high level of knowledge and understanding of a specific IPC standard or group of standards. The role of the Certified Standards Expert may vary by organization.

• Certified IPC Trainer (CIT) training provides expanded information and materials to prepare individuals to deliver Certified IPC Application Specialist (CIS) training. Training, manufacturing and quality assurance professionals who have good hand-soldering skills and experience in teaching and assembly rework procedures are ideal candidates for instructor training. Course fee covers: classroom training and an exam; hands-on training and skills demonstration evaluation, a student handbook, a certificate of completion, and comprehensive materials for preparing and delivering CIS training (described below).
