ESD Awareness Training Course
ESD Awareness certification.
The aim of the course is for candidates to effectively understand the causes of Electro-Static Discharge (ESD) & how it can affect company products. It also shows candidates how to prevent ESD, and take into consideration what damage can be done if ESD is not prevented.
Candidates can be anyone who comes into contact with Electrostatic Sensitive Devices (ESDS) at any point in the production line, from the moving of electronic components to finished product shipping, supervisors or managers of shop floors who may enter ESD controlled zones, as well as the cleaners who tidy up the work stations of ESD aware staff.
The course is conducted by a Certified IPC Trainer (CIT) and demonstrates to candidates what causes ESD, the methods of ESD prevention and the damage that can be caused by an electrostatic discharge. The course usually lasts a couple of hours dependant on candidate experience of working with ESD.
