Soldering Training

Sinclair Interplanetary can train and certify your workers in internationally recognized space-grade soldering practises.  Doug Sinclair is a Certified IPC Trainer (CIT) for J-STD-001F "Requirements for Soldered Electrical and Electronic Assemblies" as well as J-STD-001FS, the space addendum.  Training is available at your location, scheduled by mutual agreement.  Class sizes are limited to a maximum of 12 students.

Training consists of six modules:

  1. Introduction/Policy and Procedures/J-STD-001F Overview
  2. Wires and Terminals
  3. Through-Hole Technology
  4. Surface-Mount Technology
  5. Inspection Methodology
  6. Space Applications

Module 1 is mandatory.  Modules 2, 3 and 4 include hands-on workmanship skills instruction and evaluation.  Each module is concluded by a written multiple-choice test.  All six modules can be completed in five days.  It is also possible to train workers in a sub-set of the modules.

Satisfactory completion of training will result in the award of Certified IPC Specialist status.  This is valid for 24 months, following which a two-day recertification course is required.  For more information on J-STD-001F please visit the IPC website.
