Component Identification for Employees in the Electronic Assembly Process

In the electronics and electrical industry, it is necessary that all staff should have a basic understanding of the most common components used in this industry. During this one (1) day course you will learn to recognize the different components and names.

ETECH’s Component Identification is a one (1) day course for staff unfamiliar or new to electronics and electrical industry. The course demonstrates good practice and teaches the skills applicable to Component Identification to those unfamiliar or new to the industry, as well as showing how components are recognised and positioned.

During the training the key components are covered including: Through-hole resistors, capacitors, diodes, potentiometers, pin grid arrays, IC sockets, DIPs, SIPs, transistors, LEDs, inductors, filters, fuses, switches, relays, crystals, voltage regulators, headers and jumpers. Also covers SMT component types (QFPs, PLCCs, rectangular chips, MELFs, SOICs, molded tantalum capacitors, SOTs, DPAKs), leadless components, QFNs, DFNs, LGAs, CCGAs and BGAs. Introduces resistor, capacitor and inductor values and tolerances.

On site training

If you are looking at training several people and a way to reduce the time out of the office, travel and addition expense of sending people to a class, then On-Site Training may be for you.
