Certification Overview

This brand-new IPC ESD Control Certification for Electronics Assembly Trainers and Operators — the only ESD control certification recognized by IPC and EOS/ESD Association Inc. — offers a third-party certification that will facilitate uniform ESD control practices across your organization.

In addition to online training offered through IPC EDGE, there is a classroom learning portion that's tailored to meet your company's specific requirements and provided by an ESD-certified trainer.

IPC EDGE is available online 24/7 from your desktop, laptop or tablet—you learn on your schedule...not ours.
