A certification for Rework, Modification and Repair of Electronic Assemblies
In an extremely dynamic industry, where stakes are high, manufacturers and assemblers are competing to bring their production costs down.
Printed circuit boards come equipped with expensive components and if found faulty, companies would have to bear the cost of replacing or repairing the assemblies.
IPC-7711/7721 program has gained the credibility in providing the necessary training and certifies your employees to rectify these issues for you immediately. This program teaches industry-approved techniques on through hole and surface mount rework, land, conductor and laminate repair.
Investing in your staff with a credible certification such as IPC-7711/7721, you will quickly see substantial cost-savings in your organization.
