This training is a basic training for the designers. In addition, there is also a follow-up course (advanced course). In this basic training, an upcoming designer (as is sometimes thought) will not be taught how to handle design programs.
IPC CID is very specific and differs per program. We teach a designer to make his designs in such a way that the designs can also be produced and assembled.
Production means in this case the printed circuit board itself, so that the components can be assembled, set up, installed and soldered as well as all other actions that have to be done to ensure that a good and reliable functioning product is produced.
In the past, concepts such as design for manufacturing, design for assembly, design for reliability were often mentioned, making design so that it can be produced and assembled and the product is reliable. This is combined in this training.
