Course Description:

IPC and EOS/ESD Association Inc. have partnered to develop a standardized ESD training and certification course for operators in the electronics industry.  Besides providing professional credentials as ESD Certified Operator, this certification program insures that your company’s ESD training meets industry standards (ANSI/ESD S20.20) and the quality requirements of your customers.   

With semiconductor devices becoming more ESD sensitive every day, many companies require ESD training that clearly outlines the specific ESD technical requirements of the organization where they work. 
The online portion of the ESD certification course for operators delivers basic ESD principles and theory. It also provides you with procedures and controls you can put into place to minimize the effects of ESD on electronic assemblies you handle every day.
The final portion of the course will be delivered by a certified trainer, in a classroom setting. The trainer will provide the specific requirements your company has put in place to manage and control ESD.

In order to maintain the integrity of the certification, the course requirement is that it be delivered by a Certified ESD Trainer (CET).
