The J-STD Standard was developed by IPC, the Association Connecting Electronic Industries.
The IPC J-STD-001 Requirements for Soldered Electrical and Electronic Assemblies has emerged as the preeminent authority for electronics assembly manufacturing. The standard describes materials, methods and verification criteria for producing high quality soldered interconnections. The standard emphasizes process control and sets industry-consensus requirements for a broad range of electronic products.
IPC provides an industry developed and approved comprehensive, hands-on solder training and certification program based on J-STD-001 that gives companies all the tools they need to increase employee skills and performance.
IPC's J-STD-001 Training and Certification Program is built on a train-the-trainer instructional model. A company seeking to create an IPC Licensed J-STD-001 Certified IPC Trainer sends their candidate to an IPC Licensed J-STD-001 Certification Center. The training program uses soldering labs and demonstrations as well as classroom instruction to teach the standard criteria.
Certified IPC Trainer candidates who successfully complete the soldering workmanship portions of the course and the certification examination are given the instructional materials needed for training Application Specialists. The Application Specialists training is "modularized," meaning that training on the entire document is not required. Application Specialists must be trained on the introductory section, and then should be trained on additional modules covering: wires and terminals, through hole technology, surface mount technology and inspection as would be appropriate to daily activities.
IPC's J-STD-001 Training and Certification Program provides individuals with a valuable, portable credential that recognizes their understanding of the J-STD-001. This program is offered as a service to industry, therefore its adoption is not a precondition for any company to purchase the standard or claim that they build product to its requirements.
