IPC Announces Electronics Workforce Training Courses to Help Upskill Employees


Reading time ( words)

Two-thirds of electronics industry companies have difficulty finding production workers according to a recent IPC study, IPC Findings on the Skills Gap in U.S. Electronics Manufacturing. To help solve this problem, IPC is launching all-new IPC Electronics Workforce Training courses to help electronics companies and their employees.

IPC Electronics Workforce Training courses will help IPC members overcome workforce skill gap challenges with essential and value-added coursework that is curated exclusively to address the most difficult-to-fill positions in the electronics industry.

“Employees are concerned with job security, and employers strive to sustain and grow their business,” said Carlos Plaza, director of education development at IPC. “IPC Electronics Workforce Training courses are an effective way to help close this gap.”

IPC Electronics Workforce Training courses were created by industry experts and educational specialists to help provide real-world knowledge and skills that frontline employees need to accomplish their tasks the right way every time. Powered by the IPC EDGE online learning management system, IPC Electronics Workforce Training courses are available in both instructor-led and self-paced online formats. These programs can either be offered directly to employees or easily integrated into a more comprehensive company training program.

“Successful companies embrace today’s pace of change and gain competitive advantage by proactively investing in the professional development of new and existing employees,” said David Hernandez, vice president of education at IPC. The use of IPC Electronics Workforce Training will enable employers to:

  • Reduce employee turnover
  • Attract and incentivize new talent
  • Improve customer satisfaction
  • Plan for the future with greater accuracy

The new courses launching in August 2020 are: Electronics Assembly for Operators, IPC-A-610 for Operators, IPC-J-STD-001 for Operators, and Soldering Fundamentals I. ESD Control for Electronics Assembly is also available. For course descriptions and to view IPC’s expanded course catalog, visit https://training.ipc.org.
