Certification Overview

EOS/ESD Association, Inc. announces the launch of its TR53 Technician Certification Program. The ESDA established the TR53 Technician Certification Program, which is based on the ESDA's technical report, ESD-TR53 Compliance Verification of ESD Protective Equipment and Materials. This important document supports and maintains static control programs designed around ANSI/ESD S20.20 Standard for the Development of an Electrostatic Discharge Control Program for Protection of Electrical and Electronic Parts, Assemblies and Equipment, and the European technically equivalent standard IEC 61340-5-1.

Advanced Static Control Consulting (ASCC) has been endorsed by EOS/ESD Association, Inc. as an official, third-party service provider for training that can lead to attendee certification as an “ESDA Certified TR53 Technician.” Attendees that pass the optional exam will be provided with certification credentials by ASCC. ASCC will also register all successful candidates with EOS/ESD Association, Inc.

ESD Technician Training provided by the German ESD Forum meets the criteria of the ESDA TR53 Technician Certification program. All course attendees that pass and comply with the German ESD Forum ESD Technician Training will meet the ESDA Certified TR53 Technician program requirements. The German ESD Forum will register all successful ESD Technician Training candidates with the ESDA and provide dual certification credentials to the certified individual.
