IPC standards and training explained

IPC is a global organisation developing international quality standards and training courses for the electronics industry.

There are five industry-developed and approved IPC certificated courses.
Two of them are ‘how to do’ courses, and three of them are ‘how to check’ courses; they are each appropriate to a different step in the manufacturing process:

Overview of IPC courses

The five IPC certification programmes are:

IPC A-610 Acceptability in Electronic Assemblies is for quality assurance/visual acceptance of electronic assemblies based on the world's most widely used electronics assembly acceptability standard

IPC J-STD-001 Requirements for Soldered Electrical and Electronic Assemblies is for hand and machine soldering processes and material requirements. It includes hands-on training.

IPC A-600 Acceptability of Printed Boards is for quality assurance/visual acceptance of unpopulated printed circuit boards and explores the specifications, problems and faults that occur with the manufacture of PCBs.

IPC/WHMA A-620 Requirements and Acceptance for Cable and Wire Harness Assemblies is for improving the quality of your cables and harnesses, reducing errors and costs.

IPC 7711/7721 Rework, Modification and Repair of Electronic Assemblies is for the rework, repair and modification of electronic assemblies, rather than scrapping them. It features hands-on training.

There are two levels of IPC training. The ‘Certified IPC Specialist’ (CIS), also called the Application Specialist level, is for those who need the relevant knowledge and skills for the workplace. In addition, there is a ‘train the trainer’ level (‘Certified IPC Trainer’ or CIT) for those who not only need to know how to apply the IPC skills and knowledge but also need to be able to train other members of their team.

Electronics Yorkshire is the premier IPC authorised centre in the UK that covers this ‘two-tier’ approach across all five programmes
