The IPC/EIA J-STD-001 Requirements for Soldered Electrical and Electronic Assemblies has emerged as a major authority for electronics assembly manufacturing. The standard describes materials, methods and verification criteria for producing high quality soldered interconnections, including the use of lead-free solders.
The standard emphasizes process control and sets industry-consensus requirements for a broad range of electronic products.
IPC-J-STD-001 application specialist training consists of 5 modules:
Module 1: General requirements with open- and closed-book tests; no workmanship
Module 2: Wire preparation & terminals with open-book test; workmanship
Module 3: Through-hole PCB with open-book test; workmanship
Module 4: Surface-mount PCB with open-book test; workmanship
Module 5: Inspection & Process control with open-book test; no workmanship
Module 1 is compulsory, plus at least one other.
Course duration: approximately 1 day per module.
A working copy of the IPC-J-STD-001 standard will be made available to each participant. It is strongly recommended that a standard is purchased for each participant to take away for future reference.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND IPC-J-STD-001 APPLICATION SPECIALIST TRAINING?
The practical elements of this course make it particularly suited to assembly operators, production supervisors and process engineers.
It is also relevant to anyone responsible for the quality and reliability of electronic assemblies including maintenance technicians, quality & inspection personnel.
