Reading time ( words)

As a member benefit, IPC now provides two online, self-paced training courses, “Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) Control for Electronics Manufacturing” and “Safety for Electronics Manufacturing” free of charge in English, Spanish, French and German. Developed with member companies and subject matter experts, IPC’s ESD control and safety training courses provide fundamental training common to all electronics manufacturing facilities.

“ESD and Safety impact productivity and reliability in almost every aspect of the global electronics environment,” said David Hernandez, IPC vice president of education. “By offering IPC and WHMA members complimentary and unlimited access to these two training courses, we’re doubling our commitment to workforce development and helping companies reduce training costs and standardize training across their organizations.”

IPC member companies can access the new courses through IPC EDGE, IPC’s online learning platform. IPC EDGE provides streamlined interactive courses covering the required topics and features three modules with a total running length of 40-45 minutes per course. ESD participants receive a unique traceable, serialized certificate by scoring more than 80% on the final exam.

Course details and instructions on how to access the courses are available on education.ipc.org.
