IPC 7711/7721 - Rework, Repair and Modification of Electronic Assemblies

IPC 7711/21 Training at Electronics YorkshireDon’t waste money by scrapping faulty assemblies; with IPC 7711/7721 you can repair and rework them.

When a PCB loaded with expensive components does not work you may feel you need to scrap it or send it out for repair, but IPC 7711/7721 offers you a money-saving alternative: fix it yourself!

Manufacturers and assemblers who want to realise dramatic cost savings by reworking, repairing and modifying electronic assemblies and printed circuit boards can benefit from IPC 7711/7721 qualified staff.

This course covers PCB laminates as well as plated through-hole and surface mount assemblies.

Note: IPC-7711/7721B is the name of the training course, and this is synonymous with IPC 7711/7721 B, IPC 7711, IPC 7721, IPC 7711B, IPC 7721B, IPC 7711/21, IPC 7711/21B, IPC 7711/21 B.

Who should attend IPC 7711/7721 training?

This course is aimed at anyone responsible for the rework, modification or repair of assembled PCBs, such as:

  • repair engineers
  • rework operators
  • production staff
  • anyone responsible for the quality and reliability of products leaving the company

IPC 7711/21 is aimed at staff working in manufacturing and assembly companies. Experience in most rework/repair procedures along with soldering and component rework skills are required.

IPC 7711/7721 for trainers or staff

There are two levels of IPC 7711/7721 training.

  • To have your team able to work to the guidelines you need the Application Specialist (or CIS) level.
  • To take responsibility for your own training at least one of your team must gain the Certified IPC Trainer (or CIT) level to train and certify other staff. Any company with a large number of staff who will benefit from IPC 7711/21 knowledge and certification may find it more beneficial to have a certified trainer to train and maintain its own employees.

Electronics Yorkshire has Master IPC Trainers delivering CIS and CIT certification across all five practical and classroom-based IPC programmes.

IPC 7711/7721 course overview

IPC 7711/7721 is the electronic industry’s standard for the guidelines on removing and replacing electronic components and repairing circuitry, whether for surface mount rework and repair or for conventional boards. It is designed to provide hands-on instruction and training on specific modules in the IPC rework, repair and modification guide.

IPC 7711 Rework of Electronic Assemblies is the industry’s standard for removing and replacing electronic components, and IPC 7721 Repair and Modification of printed boards and assemblies is the industry’s standard for repairing circuitry. The full course teaches the IPC recommended techniques, tools, equipment and materials required to perform removal, replacement, and repair operations on plated through hole and surface mount assemblies as well as land, conductor and laminate repair, and covers procedural requirements, tools, materials and methods for removing and replacing conformal coatings. The programme includes procedures for repairing and modifying boards and assemblies with support for lead free, BGAs and repairs.

At the end of the course, successful students will be able to perform wire splicing; through-hole, J-lead, gull-wing, fine pitch, and chip component rework and replacement using a variety of methods including vacuum extraction, component specific tip, tweezer tips and a hot air removal system; plus conformal coating removal, laminate repair, pad and trace repair, and place and route modification wires.

IPC 7711/7721 covers three classes of quality assurance:

Class 1 General electronic products - such as cameras, audio/video and domestic appliances. The lifetime of these products is limited, and a failure is not critical.
Class 2 Dedicated service electronic products - such as printers, copiers, computers and general production equipment. The lifetime of the products is longer than class 1, the amount of usage is higher, and an uninterrupted service is desirable.
Class 3 High reliability/critical products - such as military, aerospace and medical. Not only is the product lifetime extended but the products must function without interruption and downtime is not an acceptable option.

 

IPC 7711/7721 is a modular programme. Apart from mandatory modules your staff may only need the elements relevant to your company; however both IPC and Electronics Yorkshire strongly recommend that all modules are taken. For Certified Trainers all modules are mandatory; CIS courses listed in the Training Calendar include all modules.
