The printed circuit board is loaded with expensive components...and it does not work! Scrap it or send it out?
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 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-7711 Rework of Electronic Assemblies and the IPC-7721 Repair and Modification of Printed Boards and Electronic Assemblies.
BRINGING REWORK AND REPAIR TRAINING TO YOUR COMPANY
Companies participating in IPC's Rework, Repair and Modification Program contact STM, an Approved IPC-7711/7721 Training Center for up to forty hours of intensive, hands-on instruction. Candidates who pass the classroom exam and skills demonstrations are recognized by IPC as "Certified Operators," and leave with materials for up to nine different assembly rework and repair modules. All IPC-7711/7721 Certified Operators are certified for two years.
7711-21 training covers common rework and repair techniques. In Operator Proficiency training, only the introductory module, Common Procedures, is a required element. Other operator-level modules are taught based on a company's needs. Operators are certified for two years for each module taken. Recertification is available at STM, an IPC Authorized Training Center.
After a CIT successfully completes the course and gains a certification, then the CIT may return to his/her company and is authorized to teach/certify coworkers to the CIS level.
