IPC, Date of Publication: Dec 15, 2015

Through-hole and SMT Components Identification

Sample Video

Now updated to include the latest package styles -- from the Component Identification Training and Reference Guide / DRM-18H (one copy included free with purchase) -- this IPC Training/Certification program begins by explaining the function of active and passive electronic components, reviews the basic through-hole and surface mount assembly processes, and covers component part numbers, bill of materials, component reference designators, markings, orientation, and polarity.

DVD-64C-K identifies all of the important through-hole and surface mount component types – including: through-hole resistors, capacitors, diodes, potentiometers, pin grid arrays, sockets, DIPs, SIPs, transistors, LEDs, inductors, chokes, torroids, filters, fuses, breakers, switches, relays, crystals, voltage regulators, thermistors, connectors, sockets, headers, and jumpers. Also covers SMT component types (QFPs, PLCCs, rectangular chips, MELFs, SOICs, molded tantalum capacitors, SOTs, DPAKs), leadless components, QFNs, DFNs, LGAs, CCGAs and BGAs. Introduces resistor, capacitor and inductor values and tolerances.

Also includes optional English subtitles for hearing-impaired and ESL students, Leader’s Guide, Review Questions and IPC Training Certification* certificates of completion for students who pass the final examination. Time: 49 minutes.

Notes on DVD / OVT Product Descriptions:

Items preceded by an order number beginning with DVD, are digital video products. These DVDs are designed to play on DVD movie players. They can also be played on computers using DVD playback software.

Items preceded by OVT are Online Video Training products. These digital movies are designed for playback on computers / networks – depending on the license type you purchase. OVT-(S) is Site License (single facility). OVT-(G) is a Global License (multi-site).


Training Certification is an ideal way to train and verify competency in key subject areas, like ESD Control, Lead Free Soldering, Component ID, Safety, and Acceptance Standards. These multi-media based resources include everything a trainer needs to instruct, test and certify that their operators have completed a course successfully. All students with a grade of 70% or better on the final examinations qualify for IPC Training Certification. Please see the sample certificate (.pdf) which allows for user-customization of student name, instructor, and date of completion. There is no expiration / renewal date for any Training Certification program, and they may be administered by anyone in your company.

As an operator-level credential, Training Certification demonstrates mastery of the specific theory and knowledge contained in the course, as evidence of competency for ISO training requirements through an industry-developed training program. Training Certification does not qualify instructors or students to teach or interpret IPC specifications, or assure proficiency in the physical skills required to create products to the requirements of IPC specifications.

Like all IPC Video / DVD, OVT and Computer-Based (CD) training programs, Training Certification is available for unlimited students per the particular licensing structure chosen. These media-based training solutions are created in cooperation with volunteer industry experts – to ensure technical accuracy – and are free from commercial bias.
