IPC J-STD-001 Certified Standard Expert (CSE)


The IPC J-STD-001 (“Requirements for Soldered Electrical and Electronic Assemblies”) is the most famous production standard of IPC. IPC is an American institute that ensures that all knowledge is distributed worldwide by certified IPC trainers through their IPC standards, IPC training programs and IPC training materials. The J-STD-001 is also referred as “the IPC production standard” by which all assembled printed circuit boards (electronics) are produced, inspected and delivered. Virtually all assembly companies around the world that solder components onto the printed circuit board produce according to this standard. When you need further knowledge in the assembling of THT/SMT- components, process background information (e.g. maximum machine contamination, air humidity, types of solder connection inspection methods and maximum product damage, amount of contamination on the end product (cleanliness), process control, etc. .), this standard is the right one for you. This standard is used during the production process of the assembler (the company that assembles and solder the electronic components on the bare printed circuit board (PCB)) and sometimes also at the final assembly companies (the company that buys assembled printed circuit boards (PCBA) and installs those in the final housing (Box building)).

The IPC J-STD-001 CSE training is a practical training (solder-training) by which a student/participant is trained as a Certified Standard Expert (CSE). Various practical assignments apply to this training. In these practical sessions the participant receives various soldering exercises such as: soldering wires to different types of terminals (connection points), soldering through-hole components (conventional components), soldering SMD components, cleaning and practical inspection of all soldered connections made with the correct magnification power (microscope/loupe). This means that afterwards the student is not only an expert in this standard but also has practical skills in soldering. This training is suitable for people who have a lot of experience in electronics.

The CSE certification training takes about 4 days, at the end of the training the participant writes a final exam (100 questions multiple choice). If the participant has passed this exam with a minimum score of 80%, he/she will receive an IPC J-STD-001 CSE certificate for this. With this IPC certificate you can work as a CSE (Certified Standard Expert) all over the world. Just like a driver’s license, this IPC certificate is internationally recognized. The certificate is valid for 2 years, you can extend the certificate validation by participating an IPC recertification training. The CSE recertification training can take place in a shorter period of time (at least 1 day). The IPC J-STD-001 CSE is the designated person who discusses and solves customer problems.

PS: for this training there is also a space module, the IPC J-STD-001 CSE Space Addendum.
