IPC J-STD-001 – Requirements for Soldering Electrical and Electronic Assemblies

The J STD 001 has emerged as the preeminent authority for electronics manufacturing worldwide. The standard describes materials, methods, and verification criteria for producing high quality soldered interconnections.

Accurate manufacture and assembly of electronic equipment results in an increase in quality and reliability and a decrease in reworking, saving time and money and, even more importantly, ensuring customers don’t receive faulty products that may fail shortly after purchase.


Who should attend J STD 001 training?

This standard is aimed at anyone soldering electrical or electronic assemblies, such as:

  • Assembly operators
  • Quality inspectors
  • Manufacturing engineers
  • Managers and directors wanting to understand the impact of assembly quality
  • Anyone responsible for the quality and reliability of electronic assemblies


What is covered in J STD 001 training?

The aim of the IPC J STD 001 is to ensure certified delegates are soldering to a worldwide standard.

This course covers:

  • Soldering through-hole components
  • Wires & Terminals
  • Soldering surface mount devices
  • PCB
  • Inspection

All J STD 001 courses cover the three product classes

  • Class 1 – General electronic products such as hair dryers, cameras, domestic audio / visual appliances
  • Class 2 – Dedicated service electronic products such as printers, computers, mobile phones
  • Class 3 – High reliability / critical electronic products such as those used in military, aerospace and medical


What is the duration of the J STD 001 course and how is it delivered?

Owing to the workmanship modules involved in the course, this could can be delivered two ways:

  • Class at EGLs Leeds training centre
  • On-site with clients

The CIS level is a four-day course, whilst the CSE and CIT are both five-day courses.


What do I need for the course?

Each delegate will need a copy of the IPC J STD 001 standard (book), Table of Contents, and latest IPC Policies and Procedures. We are happy to loan copies of standards to any delegate joining our training courses, should you not wish to purchase your own copy. For remote training, you will also need a laptop with microphone and webcam to join in with the classes and sit your IPC exams.


Are there any prerequisites to studying for the certification?

Whilst there are no prerequisites to enrolling for the J STD 001, we do recommend that delegates have a basic understanding of terminology and practical soldering skills.


What is included in the course cost?

Included in the fee is tuition for the full duration of the course and all certification costs. We also include loan copies of relevant standards and Chromebooks for exams, if needed. CIT delegates will also receive downloadable training materials upon successful completion of the course.
