As a result of the requirement for many employees worldwide to shelter-in-place, we have received several inquiries asking us how company employees can receive their IPC certifications.
PIEK and IPC have been working diligently to provide a solution for our customers. As a training center, we can provide virtual training for all IPC certifications (CIS, CSE and CIT), except for the hands-on modules of IPC J-STD-001 and IPC-7711/21.
We have been working closely with IPC to provide “online proctored exams” so your employees do not need to take the certification exam in a classroom setting. To take the exam, your employees will need a broadband internet connection, a webcam, and a microphone, as well as administrative rights to install the proctoring app on the computer they will use to take the exam. A comprehensive user guide (currently in English, Mandarin, French, German and Spanish) provides instructions on how to set up and take the remotely proctored exam. Everything else is the same. Simply complete your training, schedule the exam with your instructor, and take your certification exam.
We look forward to supporting your certification needs. Please contact PIEK to schedule your virtual training or your proctored online exam.
