As an IPC CIT trainer, AEIC offers a comprehensive range of CIS operator proficiency and certification training courses to enhance your assembly operations. All use IPC-A 610H or J-STD-001H as their technical basis. As a client, you may wish to incorporate other in-house workmanship elements. Skills training offerings include:

● Lead-Free Rework/Repair
● Surface Mount Rework/Repair
● Through-Hole Rework/Repair
● Mixed Technology Assembly
● BGA Rework/Repair
● BGA X-Ray Inspection
● Circuit Board Repair
● SMT/Through-Hole Inspection
● ECO Wire Installation
● Introduction to SMT

We typically customize each course to meet client training requirements. For example, you may wish to combine specific through-hole and surface mount topics while deleting others from a generic course outline. In addition, you may increase or decrease the time allocation for specific topics to meet your needs.

While we present most programs at the client site, we also hold convenient local Consortium classes in MA, CT, RI, NY, and NJ. All courses are offered for multi-shift operations.

If requested, we will supply tablets, soldering stations, hand tools, and microscopes for student use. In addition to practice and certification boards and components, each student receives an AEIC Student Guide covering topics addressed in the course. Students successfully completing the course receive an AEIC certification referencing the client-specified standard.


AEIC provides IPC CIS certifications to wide range of clients. These include military contractors, consumer electronic suppliers, OEM & EMS suppliers, and individuals seeking personal certifications.
