Certified PIEK Operator – Quality- and Acceptancecriteria for printed circuit boards
The Certified PIEK Operator – Quality and Acceptancecriteria for printed circuit boards training is a training on the aspects related to quality and acceptance requirements for bare printed circuit boards.
The main target group for this training are people working at the inspection and quality departments of printed circuit board suppliers, companies that manufacture bare boards from the base materials. But it could also be an interesting training for people performing incoming inspections, the ones that check printed circuit boards supplied by a supplier, which are then further processed within their company into assemblies.
This training applies for that as well. Furthermore it caters for the people who actually order bare boards, when they place their orders for printed circuit boards it would be good to have an insight into what they can expect from the product that will be supplied.
The Certified PIEK Operator – Quality- and Acceptancecriteria for printed circuit boards Training and certification is suitable for the following target group:
The kind of companies where these trainings are performed mostly will be the suppliers of printed circuit boards, so companies that built and process printed circuit boards from the base materials: prepreg, copper, foil, etc.
But also with the companies that use these bare boards in their assembly process, they would need these criteria for the incoming inspection to decide if product delivered meets the requirements.
Then we also see circuit board designers follow this training to get answers to questions like: actually what can I expect if I order printed circuit boards? And so they will gain some more knowledge on the products, a better understanding of what they can expect.
The Certified PIEK Operator – Quality- and Acceptancecriteria for printed circuit boards Training and certification is interesting for employees of different companies.
What you learn in particular here is what requirements should printed circuit boards meet? Actually two different aspects will be discussed. One is the printed circuit board itself but also process security that you can obtain by assessing so-called microsections.
This can deliver insight into how your processes have been run. Obviously this is especially interesting for the companies that manufacture the printed circuit boards, since they run these processes and thus gain insight in questions like, are we doing well? Did we use the right methods and can we guarantee the quality of the product that we deliver? These are some of the topics that will be discussed but there are more important issues like the correct handling of the printed circuit boards, how to do it correctly and what to avoid.
There is also a bit on solderability tests and cleanliness tests, since those are common in circuit board manufacturing those are discussed as well. Electrical testing is briefly indicated, what is common here? These kinds of topics are intensively discussed with regard to the bare boards that are used for various electronic products, for example in consumer electronics.
But also the professionally used electronics and products that have to meet high quality requirements, which must have a high reliability. This training goes into all of this. So that is also what you will learn, the specific requirements that apply.

Application of the Certified PIEK Operator – Quality- and Acceptancecriteria for printed circuit boards Training and certification in companies.
Depending on the background of the participants, the application within the company will be different. For the main target group, the inspectors who have to do the bare board quality inspections before delivery to customers it is of course very important that they have a certainty, that they know what that product must meet. And have to be able to decide, does the product meet the requirements or not?
In particular this department is important within the company to prevent that printed circuit boards that do not meet the requirements are delivered to customers and further processed, which may have disastrous consequences for the function of the final product. On the other hand if I am someone who does purchasing or incoming inspections, the applicability of this training is slightly different, but then also at least I can assess whether the products I have received meet the requirements and I will be more self-secure in my decisions about the question: does this circuit board meet the requirements?
The added value of the Certified PIEK Operator – Quality- and Acceptancecriteria for printed circuit boards Training and certification.
The added value for a company that has its people trained in this training is in particular for the inspectors who thus gain insight into what is allowed and what is not allowed. What can I pass on? What can be sent to a customer?
Avoiding loss of face, avoiding problems with customers who file complaints because the products that are delivered do not meet the criteria.
You can prevent this when your staff is trained, people know what is allowed, what is not allowed? What can pass, what is a fail?
So my company does not deliver products that do not meet the requirements and I prevent issues like complaints and things like recalls etc..
