J-STD-001 Instructor

J-STD-001 Instructor

This is a combination lectured and hands-on course covering the information in the IPC J-STD-001 document. The J-STD-001, “Requirements for Soldered Electrical & Electronic Assemblies”, describes materials, method and acceptance criteria for producing soldered electrical and electronic assemblies. This document has been adopted for use by the Department of Defense (DoD) effective July 19, 2001.

This 5-day program recognizes qualified instructors and will present knowledge of the J-STD-001 as it pertains to selected sections covering Wire and Terminals, Through-Hole and Surface Mount technology-in both lead and lead-free.

As part of the requirements for certification, students will be evaluated on their soldering skills in both Lead and Lead-free, and must score an 80% and no single score less than 70% on both the written and skills examinations.
