IPC Designer Certification is a powerful tool in promoting your role to everyone involved in the production of printed circuit boards and assemblies.
This program assesses a designer's knowledge of how to transform a schematic into a reliable rigid PCB design, which can be easily manufactured, assembled and tested. The IPC Designers Council recognizes that the most effective designers must have a solid foundation in PCB fabrication and assembly. The certification test is based on several critical IPC documents that link design principles to the end product use of the printed circuit assembly. Designers may purchase study materials and prepare on their own or enroll in a two-day IPC Designer Certification Preparation workshop. All designer certification testing is done on-site at a workshop location the day after a course concludes. Individuals who do not feel prepared to take the test immediately after the training may choose to keep their exam voucher and take the test at a later date. The workshop training provides an in-depth view of the principles contained in the examination and is strongly recommended for anyone interested in obtaining the certification
The Advanced Module covers forty key objectives beyond the CID. Participants who successfully complete the exam are awarded the CID+ designation. The Advanced Certification, (CID+) is open to anyone possessing a valid CID credential. It is recommended for designers with at least three to five years of experience designing PCBs. The format is similar to the CID course, where a participant can choose to purchase study materials and prepare on their own for the examination. The preferred (and highly recommended) option, though, is to attend the two-day workshop with the exam administered on-site on the third day. A participant may also keep the exam voucher and take the test at a later date.
Certification Workshop Price:
$595 IPC and Designer Council Members $795 Non-members
The workshop package fee includes all study materials, the two day Preparation Workshop and an exam voucher which will be sent to you with along with hotel information and directions as soon as IPC receives your registration form and payment. The fee also includes coffee breaks and refreshments. Participants are on their own for lunch.
