The Stakes Don't Get Any Higher

The printed circuit board is loaded with expensive components…and it does not work! There is no starting over, and the choices seem ominous: scrap it or send it out. Either way, it's going to cost you. Do you have a third option? IPC's Rework, Repair and Modification Training and Certification Program offers your company the money-saving alternative: fix it yourself!

This train-the-trainer program teaches industry-approved techniques on through hole and surface mount rework, land, conductor and laminate repair. It also provides a flexible, highly skills-oriented training program with teaching materials that enable a qualified representative from your company to train operators on a variety of procedures from the IPC-7711B/7721B Rework of Electronic Assemblies/Repair and Modification of Printed Boards and Electronic Assemblies.

Bringing Rework and Repair to Your Company

Companies participating in IPC's Rework, Repair and Modification Program send candidates to approved IPC-7711/7721 training centers for forty hours of intensive, hands-on instruction. Candidates who pass the classroom exam and skills demonstrations are recognized by IPC as "Certified IPC Trainers," and leave with a lesson plan, visuals and materials for training Certified IPC Specialists on up to nine different assembly rework and repair modules. IPC-7711/7721 Certified IPC Trainers are certified for two years.

The Certified IPC Trainer course covers common rework and repair techniques. Certified IPC Specialist training is modular and only the introductory module, Common Procedures, is a required element. Other Certified IPC Specialist level modules are taught based on a company's needs. Certified IPC Specialists are certified for two years for each module taken.

Training Topics Include:

  • Product classifications, skill levels, tools and materials
  • Basic surface mount and through hole component removal
  • Land preparation and component installation
  • Primary heating methods: conductive, convective and others
  • Handling electronic assemblies
  • Wire splicing procedures
  • Through hole component removal and installation
  • Chip and MELF rework procedures
  • SOIC/SOT, J-lead and QFP rework
  • Printed wiring board circuit and laminate repair
  • Conformal coating removal

Who Should Become an IPC-7711/7721 Registered Instructor?

While there are no formal entrance requirements, Certified IPC Trainer candidates must have excellent hand soldering skills. Training, manufacturing and quality assurance supervisors with considerable experience in both teaching and assembly rework procedures are strongly encouraged to receive this certification.

The IPC-7711C/7721C training and certification program is not intended to be an introduction to hand soldering and rework or be a basic hand soldering and/or basic rework course. Prospective students should have some experience in rework and repair and good eye/hand coordination. The processes in the IPC-7711C/7721C are intended to be used by operators and technicians who have at least some knowledge and experience in rework and repair of circuit boards. The training uses step-by-step process instructions to build upon the knowledge, skills, and abilities already obtained by the Certified IPC Specialist (CIS) candidate.

The Benefits of Certification: What's in it for You and Your Company?

The credential, the savings, and the materials, that's what! This program provides Certified IPC Trainers and their companies with a valuable industry-recognized credential. Clearly, the greatest asset of this program can be measured in dollars saved on restoring very expensive electronics assemblies. IPC-7711/7721 Certified IPC Trainers also receive teaching materials for conducting all the modules of Certified IPC Specialist training.

These materials include:

  • A copy of IPC-7711C/7721C Rework, Modification, and Repair of Electronic Assemblies
  • Equipment parts list and artwork for test/practice kits
  • A CD-ROM or digital download with full color teaching visuals (PPT format) illustrating every aspect of the IPC-7711C/7721C document and Student handouts for printing.
  • All certification reports for this program are to be completed using the online Certification Portal
  • Open book exams on "Common Procedures" to be completed the online Certification Portal application
  • A certificate of completion issued through the online Certification Portal???

Certified IPC Specialist training materials may be purchased from IPC only by Certified IPC Trainers and the companies they represent. Certified IPC Trainers may teach the course at any location and set a training fee, if applicable.

The term for an IPC-7711C/7721C Certified IPC Trainer is two years. Re-certification training is conducted at the Authorized Certification Centers.
