Slowly but surely, working at home is becoming more common. In recent years, employees have increasingly sought out positions with remote working capability in addition to flexibility and generous amounts of time off in order to achieve a better work/life balance. Some 60% report being either as productive or even more productive than they were working from the office.
While flexible work environments are good news for the employees as they can strike the right work-life balance, they also pose a challenge to employers, that is, how to provide training to the employees?
Remote training has quite a few advantages. In a typical classroom, it is mandatory for both the instructors as well as the pupils to be in the identical geographical location. However, there is no such requirement when it comes to remote training thanks to the advancement of the Internet plus communication technology. At present, it is feasible to conduct a training session between two or more locations on the planet which helps a lot to curtail the expenses needed for transportation, lodging, and so on.
ETECH is offering remote training for IPC training and certification, in Dutch, German and English, or custom training based on specific customer training requirements.
The following lecture-based IPC classes are offered remotely for CIS, CSE and CIT certification (hard copy of standard required for class):
IPC-A-600 IPC J-STD-001 MODULE 1 ONLY IPC-A-610 IPC/WHMA-A-620 IPC 7711/7721 MODULE 1 ONLY
ETECH will be using popular video training platforms like ZOOM or Google Meet (with a live Master IPC Trainer) to deliver the training. Students will be able to listen to the trainer’s lecture while viewing the training presentation on their mobile device or computer. Students will be able to ask questions and chat with the trainer during scheduled training sessions.
Certification testing will be conducted through the IPC EDGE 2.0 platform that offers remotely proctored exams. This remote proctoring platform requires each student to be on a computer that has administrative rights, a microphone, and a webcam. There is a small piece of software (LockDown Browser) that must be installed on the student’s computer as well. This platform uses a combination of AI and human monitoring to ensure each student is taking the remote exam properly and following all IPC policies and procedures.
Please contact our business support team to discuss your requirements for either IPC online training, customized electronics assembly training or other training related questions.
