ESD: Lead-Free Soldering: Orientation

Course Code: SLO

Delivery: LAN, On-line


A modular interactive multimedia learning program for process engineers, managers, and senior operators involved in the implementation and management of lead- free electronic assembly processes.


Participants successfully completing the course are able to identify and explain:

  • The regulatory and commercial forces driving lead-free implementation
  • Critical regulatory deadlines and important legislation
  • How lead alloys used in electronics are toxic and represent a health hazard
  • Lead-free rules in terms of market segments and geography
  • Issues related to alloy selection
  • The main alloy trends, alloy composition and alloy terminology
  • Technical challenges in moving through design to lead-free production
  • Implementation challenges in moving to lead-free production
  • Reliability of lead-free assemblies compared to conventional SnPb assemblies
  • The impact of lead-free process on components and component handling
  • Defects and process indicators likely to arise in switching to lead-free assembly
  • The requirement for a detailed timeline/checklist procedure for implementation

Qualification and Certification Testing

LearnTech® training incorporates interactive learning checks throughout the instructional sequences. Certification tests are criterion-referenced and module-based with feedback on every response for enhanced learning. The tests also include a scorebar to provide the learner with continuous status information. Administrative access to dates and scores of tests, certifications, and re-certifications is compliant with ISO quality-standards requirements.

Standard Compliant

This course applies JEDEC Standard JESD97 for Identification of Lead(Pb) Free Assemblies, Components, and Devices.
