ESD: An Introduction

Course Code: ESDA

Delivery: LAN, On-line


A comprehensive interactive multimedia learning program with certification for those who work with static sensitive devices. This course introduces the trainee to electrostatic discharge. The training is directed to assemblers and support personnel.



Participants successfully completing the program will be able to:

  • Describe how static electricity is generated from common actions
  • Identify two different types of damage caused by ESD
  • Explain problems and cost implications of ESD
  • Identify conditions most likely to cause uncontrolled ESD
  • Explain behavior of insulative, conductive, and dissipative materials
  • Identify causes and effects of polarization and induction
  • Explain the function of ionization and humidity in ESD control
  • Describe the function of grounding in ESD control

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

ESD: An Introduction complies with the ANSI/ESD S20.20 ESD control program guidelines as well as to JEDEC JESD625, IEC 61340-5, and IPC-610 standards.
