Foreign Objects and Debris or Foreign Object Damage (FOD) can severely affect the reliability and functionality of any electronic device. This training video provides the information and techniques to help eliminate FOD during electronics assembly, hand soldering, SMT & PTH assembly processes, as well as during box build and wire assembly. Eliminating FOD requires awareness of the problem and control of its sources through effective housekeeping; control and accountability of tools / hardware; and proper material handling.
DVD-172C explains the six steps of proper housekeeping, and covers tool control, hardware control, material handling as well as ESD prevention. It’s everyone’s responsibility to ensure that all assemblies are built free from FOD – not only for the economic health and reputation of your company, but for the safety and reliability of the final products delivered to your customers.
The optional satirical introduction will help drive home the importance of this often overlooked and vexing problem in electronics assembly – and help put your students in a receptive frame of mind to change bad habits.

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.
