Requirements for Soldered Electrical and Electronic
Assemblies Training and Certification Program

The standard describes materials, methods and verification criteria for producing high-quality soldered leaded and lead-free interconnections. It emphasizes process control and establishes industry consensus requirements for a broad range of electronic connections.

Why earn IPC J-STD-001 certification?
Certification in this industry-developed and approved hands-on solder training and certification program helps enhance employee skills and performance. In addition, if your company uses J-STD-001— or is considering its adoption — you can use the certification program to address the standard’s training requirement.  The CIT, CSE and CIS programs provide individuals with a portable credential that recognizes their soldering skills and understanding of this internationally recognized standard.

Choose from Three Tiers of Instruction
Certified IPC Application Specialist (CIS) training focuses on the knowledge and hand skills employees need to produce high-quality soldered interconnections. Course fee covers: classroom and laboratory training, a written exam, skills evaluation, 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. Assembly process engineers, quality assurance supervisors, training managers and others responsible for the quality and reliability of soldered electronic assemblies are ideal candidates for the instructor program. Instructor training is not a beginner soldering course, so all candidates must have hand soldering experience. Course fee covers: soldering labs and demonstrations, classroom instruction and an exam, certification and comprehensive materials for preparing and delivering CIS training.
