ESD Control for Material Handlers

Eliminate ESD damage during component receiving, assembly transportation, and shipping

This training is specifically targeted to eliminate ESD damage during component receiving, assembly transportation, and shipping. No longer do material handlers need to learn from programs designed for operators and technicians – training that doesn’t address their exact needs. This program, produced in cooperation with the ESD Association, includes everything material handlers need to know. The training clearly demonstrates what ESD is, what causes it, and how to prevent static damage during handling. Also reviews typical material handling processes during component receiving, incoming inspection, stockroom storage, kitting, transport to / from production, and final shipping. This program elaborates on the three major causes of ESD handling damage, and provides examples of improper handling for group recognition / analysis. This focused ESD training is fast, thorough, and effective.


Certification: 4 hours exclusive exam (optional)

Recertification: 2 hours exclusive exam (optional)

Challenge test: 0,5 hour only exam
