Certified IPC Solder Training, Rework and More!

FAQ: Frequently asked questions

You got questions, we have answers! Below are the most frequently asked questions.

All IPC certifications are important to the PCB assembly and repair processes and they are all interrelated; they just emphasize a different aspect. So it depends on either what your primary job function is or what piece of the process causes you the most problems. So here a guide to pick the best class for you based on those two perspectives.

In general, 6 is the minimum however we do go on-site to train for less people very often. The cost per student goes up slightly but the total cost is still often less than sending several employees to a training center. It is also usually much more convenient for your employees to stay local.

Many customers require IPC certification to assure your quality specifications are equivalent to generally accepted standards. It may also be required for military, medical, automotive or aerospace requirements. If not, you may not need the IPC certification and can reduce cost by getting trained in accordance with IPC standards.
