The Electronic Assembly and Fabrication Certificate is intended to prepare students to enter the electronics field as assembly and fabrication technicians. The program provides a series of courses to meet the needs of industry in assembly, soldering/de-soldering skills, and fabrication for both through-hole and surface mount devices (SMD). Included are skills for various types of cabling and connections.
Electronic fundamentals (test instruments, basic electrical measurements, color-codes, schematic symbols, device outlines, etc.) are provided in the introductory courses. Complete surface mount technology (SMT) skills are taught with a culmination in the IPC7711/IPC7721 rework and repair of electronic assemblies certification. Recertification is required every two years. ELEC 63 is a prep course for the recertification.
