IPC Designer Certification – Online Program
The IPC Designer Certification (CID) is a professional development program introducing the basics of PCB design and a better understanding between design and actual assembly of the final product. The program reviews the production process and how changes in PCB layout can reduce production problems further down the road.
This 4-day, lectured course (3-days lecture, 1-day review and testing), goes beyond the fundamentals of component placement and track routing to encompass an understanding of all the elements that go into product development utilizing IPC-2221 “Generic Standard on Printed Board Design” and IPC-2222 “Sectional Design Standard for Rigid Organic Printed Boards”.
The program covers guidance and requirements for printed board assembly and design parameters from component mounting, interconnecting structures, conductor characteristics, surface finishes, board electrical test, thermal stress, panelization, laminate selection, scoring and routing parameters, board thickness tolerance, nonfunctional lands, hole aspect ratios, via hole size and printed board edge spacing just to name a few.
Taught by recognized industry professionals, this program enhances your experience by exposing you to IPC Certified Instructors who possess a broad expertise and appreciation for the process. This course is also an excellent course for anyone involved in the development, design and fabrication, at any level from sales, management, procurement, or quality in printed circuit board production.
