“I was keen to do my IPC CID+ qualification but needed to complete my CID first. The main objective of taking my IPC CID qualification was to further increase my PCB design effectiveness and deliver a quicker and more effective relationship with colleagues, suppliers and customers. I think it is crucial in this industry to continue to learn and improve and I think more electronic professionals should take this qualification, especially non-electronic professional who would benefit from a wider overview of the design process.”
“My experience and knowledge is crucial to the job I do as a freelance/contract PCB designer. I need my clients to know that I have the skills, experience and knowledge to ensure their designs can be completed quickly, efficiently and within budget. Taking my IPC CID will allow me not only to build upon my 17 years of industry experience, but also improve the professional profile of my business.”
“After working on a board prior to the IPC course, I was immediately able to go back and make a lot of improvements. I made improvements to ground planes, return paths, constraints and the way in which I documented the fabrication and assembly notes. The course helped to nail down some of the concepts I had been aware of previously but had never implemented before. These will now be cemented into my daily practices.”
“The course was great and was just right in terms of length, content and complexity. The course has taught me about PCB design for manufacture and assembly as well as clarifying and enhancing some of my existing knowledge. The course will enable me to improve the printed circuit board design work I complete and enable me to work on more complex boards.”
"It was a really good course. I have taken quite a lot away from it and I am keen to use that knowledge in future design work. All PCB designers should take this course – It provides a really strong understanding for why we do what we do and how important IPC standards are for every level of the PCB design process."
"This course will help our team create designs more efficiently and cost-effectively. The CID qualification will help endorse the skills of our team and was a good reminder and refresh of some of the key principles and processes involved in good-quality PCB design.”
We learnt the ideal circumstances for PCB's to be designed and manufactured. I am looking forward to going back over previous designs to make improvements.
The CID+ was a challenging course but as a result of the course, I now have a better understanding of the design standards for PCB design and the correct way to design for manufacture.
This course was, for me, a confirmation of the skills I already had. However, there were a number of areas with which it was good to revisit and other areas that I had forgotten. A worthwhile course for anyone involved in any area of the development of PCB's.

Starting a new job can be incredibly overwhelming. There are new colleagues to get to know, a different boss to work with and the role itself to get to grips with. Starting a new job during lockdown means, new starters are not just isolated from their entire team, but they’re also having to navigate a new role with nobody around.
