IPC Training and Certification Center – PIEK2020-05-04T10:11:50+02:00

Who is and what does PIEK do?

PIEK is a very special and unique training center. We are not a normal school because we are a private institution. We train internationally and therefore worldwide. We train in all countries of Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East. Basically, everywhere where electronics are produced or where electronics are being repaired and worked on.

We also work with and provide training for the American organization IPC. This organization issues and develops standards in the electronics field and these have been translated into various languages. These standards are used worldwide for everything that applies in the electronics world. From the design of electronic products to the making of parts for it.

Composing the products, the so-called assemblies, repairs, cable harnesses and everything that has to do with electronics in one way or another. So everything we come across when we open a TV or a cell phone, but also the electronic parts of planes and satellites. That is our world, and in this world, we train a few thousand people every year. These are partly specialists, but also trainers who in return, train their own people. We do that in four languages, namely English, German, Dutch and French, in which we are unique as a training center. We are also one of the few training centers worldwide that have all IPC licenses (IPC-A-600, IPC-6012, IPC-A-610, IPC / WHMA-A-620, IPC J-STD-001, IPC-7711/21 , IPC Certified Interconnect Designer-Basic CID & IPC Certified Interconnect Designer-Advanced CID +). We also have a number of our own training courses that regularly take place in our training institute. Such as soldering training where you can learn to solder well. We also offer ESD-courses to address the static electricity problem within the companies to ensure that that electronics has or will not be damaged. We also develop special training sessions on request for a customer and together with the customer these training sessions are tailor-made according to the specific requirements of the customer.

In addition, we also perform audits, provide advice (consulting) and make analyzes of electronic products. We have inspection equipment with which we can conduct these inspections and give a second opinion. In case there are questions about whether a product meets the requirements, we can answer these questions because our trainers are of course specialists in the field of standards, what is allowed and what is not allowed.

Everything was very well organized.
The Master trainer ( Stefan Walls ) was helpful with excellent knowledge of the J-STD-001G.
The training equipment ( soldering station , tools etc. ) for the practical training was very good .

As always it’s great at PIEK. Course is good. Excellent care (coffee and lunch).

Next refresher round I would like to come to PIEK again.
