IPC J-STD-001 Training For Instructor | IPC J STD Training

The IPC J-STD-001 training for the instructor is a certification training class on the Requirements for Soldered Electrical and Electronic Assemblies. This is a worldwide standard with wide acceptance on the assembly of printed circuit boards. The IPC J-STD-001 training describes methods, materials as well as verification criteria for producing soldered interconnections to boards, wires, and terminals. The IPC J STD training standard focuses on process control for the assembly of a wide range of electronic products.

The IPC J-STD-001 training and certification program is a multi-tiered program which is key in meeting the requirements as an ANSI-approved 3rd party training program for ISO  or AS quality control system requirements, The IPC-J-STD-001 is an industry derived and accepted training program providing comprehensive, hands-n soldering training. This gives companies adopting the program the assurance that they can meet the industry standards for assembly of electronic products.

IPC J-STD-001 CIT training program for the instructor is a part of the multi-tiered training programe administered and developed under the guidance of the IPC. Master trainers, employed by training centers or solder consulting companies provide the training services. Companies requiring certification of their employees seek the services of a Master trainer who teaches the company staff members on the IPC JSTD Training CIT program. Instruction on both the standard as well as hand soldering skills and assembly is part of the training program. The certification program uses the demonstration of soldering skills via lab work as well as demonstrations to teach students and instructors in the methods for assembly.

IPC J-STD-001 instructor candidates must successfully complete the “hands on“soldering portions of the class as well as the classroom learning of how to navigate the specification.  One tier down, the application specialists of CIS’ go through a modularized training program within boundaries of what is required for the specific business. For example, some companies who only solder wires between board sub-assemblies may choose to train on the introductory to the standard section as well a the wires and terminals section and NOT touch the section on SMT and through-hole assembly.

The IPC-J-STD-001 instructor training requires the use of lead-free solder for at least 50% of the soldering projects. The type of solder alloy used for application specialist training is optional and is based solely on the company’s end customer requirements.

IPC J-STD-001 training program for Instructor provides CIT candidates with a portable credential. In addition, the IPC-J-STD-001 instructor program is offered as a service to industry, therefore its adoption is not a precondition for any company to purchase the standard or claim that they build a product to its requirements.

What’s in the IPC J-STD-001 Instructor class?

IPC J-STD-001 instructors have to know how to navigate the specification as well as being able to demonstrate soldering skills with respect to wires, terminal and both SMT and through-hole component mounting. Finally, the instructors will have to be able to demonstrate inspection skills.
