ESD coordinators and business teachers

This one-day course is intended for anyone involved in maintaining an ESD program such as ESD coordinators, business educators and managers.

Verification of ESD requirements

During this course, the existing and new verification requirements for ESD prevention from the IEC 61340-5-1 ESD standard are discussed. The associated measuring module is intended to determine whether the ESD resources used function correctly. The knowledge and skills from this course are a "must" for every ESD coordinator. Recently - optional - information has been added about auditing an EPA.
