PC used to stand for the Institute of Printed Circuits, then it became the symbol for The Institute for Interconnecting and Packaging Electronic Circuits. It now is no longer an acronym for anything; IPC is simply the name of the company.
IPC certification is a credential provided by IPC to individuals in the electronics industry, which is administered by licensed IPC training centers. The certification confirms a person’s knowledge of IPC standards and the ability to apply this knowledge to everyday manufacturing principals of printed circuit board applications.
The student is not required to have soldering experience/ knowledge to receive a certification, however, we do recommend that the students have soldering experience for our hands-on courses (J-STD-001, IPC 7711-7721).
ETECH understands the difficulties that can go along with selecting the training that a student may need.

A student can choose specific modules, however, each certification has prerequisite modules that must be completed. Please contact our business support team for more information on how you can customize the class that will be attended.
Your certification’s expiration date is printed on your certificate and ultimately it is your responsibility to keep your certification current. As long as ETECH has your current e-mail, we will send a reminder notice with dates and locations for re-certification classes.
