IPC Designer Certification


IPC Designer Certification or CID (Certified Interconnect Designer) and CID+ are the industry’s only premier professional development programme targeted toward those working in the Printed Circuit Board (PCB) design industry.

Our trainers have a wealth of knowledge and experience in both professional development within the industry and in PCB and electronic design. The IPC is a worldwide membership organisation representing all facets of the industry including design, printed circuit board manufacturing and electronics assembly.

The CID professional development programme provides delegates with the foundations of design decision-making and an understanding of the practical applications of IPC standards in the design and manufacture of PCB’s. The course covers the fundamentals of component placement and track routing, design considerations, layout principles, component and assembly issues, all of which need to be met to create a high quality and effective end product.

This qualification is now being championed by many organisations that are keen for PCB designers to hold this qualification when undertaking electronic design work. The course has also become a priority for organisations that wish to achieve recognised international design standardisation in PCB design, assembly and manufacture. This can include anyone involved in the wider operational functions such as development, design, procurement, quality and fabrication.
