The IPC-7711/7721 training is a practical training and is often referred to as the soldering training, which is not entirely correct. The training is based on the IPC-7711/7721 document and contains the procedures to be used for reworking, repair and modification of assembled printed circuit boards (the end products).
It is a document where after a short introduction it is theoretically discussed how to handle the document and in particular attention is paid to practice. In practice, people are taught how to replace components correctly, components that are defective and components that are incorrectly assembled. They are taught this through a demonstration, after which they put it into practice themselves.
In IPC-7711/7721 training, they are also taught how to perform repairs to printed circuit boards, rail repairs, island repairs etc. that can occur in practice. Moreover, they are taught how to make modifications or changes to circuits with the aid of so-called wire bridges, modification wire and all that is done in practice.
The trainer explains what the intention is and shows how that should be done and afterwards the student gets to work with the required tools and equipment to practice this himself.
