Electrostatic Discharge (ESD)
Control for Electronics Assembly

Course Description
As new generations of integrated circuits (ICs) become more sensitive to electrostatic discharge, ESD continues to be one of the most pernicious problems facing the electronics industry. Education is essential to prevent costly failures and expensive rework. 

The purpose of this course is to define Electrostatic Discharge (ESD), explain the effects on electronic devices, and explain the employees responsibilities for controlling ESD in the workplace including personal grounding for seated and standing operations, wrist straps, controlling static charges in the work area, and proper handling, packaging and transporting of ESD sensitive devices to the S20.20 ESDA Specification. 

This course is designed for the new employee exposed for the first time to the electronics industry, as well as the veteran worker. Educating employees is the key to providing quality products and services. 

This course will educate your operators on critical information need to control static charge build-ups and prevent costly damage to electronic components and assemblies. 

The course can easily be customized to address your specific requirements. Certifications are valid for 2 years. Employees would be retested or required to attend a refresher course. Training is supported by video, lecture and group interaction. An optional written exam is also available.
