PIEK ESD training courses are for those companies that do not need IPC certification but do want to meet high-quality requirements. PIEK has designed these PIEK ESD training courses with just this in mind. All these courses are given by Master IPC Trainers (MITs) who are IPC certified and guarantee professional execution to the valid IPC standards. Naturally, PIEK’s own high-quality standards also apply.
To train our customers in the field of ESD and provide the necessary support PIEK has developed a number of ESD courses:
- PIEK introduction Electrostatic Discharge (E.S.D.)
- PIEK certification advanced ESD control for operators and technicians
- PIEK certification ESD Control for non-technicians
- PIEK certification ESD Control for IT service technicians and warehouse staff
PIEK introduction Electrostatic Discharge (E.S.D.)
This ESD training course provides an insight into measures to be taken to protect electronic products and components from static electricity, in packaging, transport, workplace, storage, tools, and inspection. These measures conform to IEC 61340-5-1 and IEC 61340-5-3 standards, supported by IEC 61340-5-2. This course is meant for those active in assembling, repairing, etc. of PCBAs.
PIEK certification advanced ESD control for operators and technicians
This ESD training course aims to increase your corporate yield, have fewer flaws/returns, have fewer repairs and create a better image using correctly executed ESD prevention in your EPA (Electrostatic Protected Area). Participants gain practical knowledge by doing ESD tests themselves. This course is meant for those active in assembling, repairing, etc. electronic products in an ESD protected area.
PIEK certification ESD Control for non-technicians
In this ESD training course, non-technicians are made aware of ESD and prevention issues. The non-technical staff is often the weakest link in the ESD safety chain. Participants will recognize the importance of ESD security and a company policy of constant safety monitoring. This course targets managers, sales staff, service and maintenance technicians and cleaners in an EPA, etc.
PIEK certification ESD Control for IT service technicians and warehouse staff
The key focus points are clarified by ESD demonstrations related to situations that IT / service technicians and warehouse employees are confronted with on a daily basis. This provides better insight into the need for ESD safety and a company policy of continuous safety monitoring. This course is meant for support staff dealing with ESD-sensitive PCBAs and components.PIEK certified ESD Plant Auditor/Trainer according to IEC-61340-5-1 & ANSI/ESD S20.20
This ESD training course makes participants ESD Plant Auditors. On completion of this course, participants can establish, document, implement, maintain and check the company ESD Control Plan in accordance with the IEC-61340-5-1 / 5-2 / 5-3 and/or the ANSI ESD S20.20 standards. These not only include the human body model, but also the charged device model. The course includes both the technical and administrative aspects of an ESD control plan.
During the course, the Master IPC Trainer (MIT) assesses the knowledge and/or skills of the participant according to standards IPC-A-600, IPC-A-610, IPC-7711/21, ANSI/J-Std-001 and/or IPC-WHMA-A-620, or extra standards.
