For learning the PCB you have two option. 1-Go for the PCB training classes, 2- Go for the PCB tutorials. choose the best option for you, but as per my suggestion Training is the best option if you are fresher. otherwise, tutorials are good. All the Best :)

The first thing to learn is how long it will take to be good at it. Figure at least 3 years of full time school after high school just to be ok at it as a junior. Unless you mean as a hobby.

If you prefer study PCB design by yourself, I recommend you study on simple circuits first, then try to design simple circuits.

lerning pcb design, you need to know about pcb design software. It maybe take some long time if to be professionals. In fact, you also can contact the pcb manufacturer who have engineering service and provide technological solution. Such as http://www.pcbgogo.com/j

I think you can start with learning some tutorials on your own. There are many hints online.

I think you should first learn the principles of the circuit, understand the components and understand their function, skilled operation pcb design software. There should be a lot of such tutorials on the web, and you can learn from yourself. Of course, you can also go for the PCB training classes. There are a lot of articles about pcb here for your reference. http://www.wellpcb.com/news-list/all

Without PCB layout, not much would get done. It is a ubiquitous need across industries; Industrial, consumer, military...Everywhere you look, there are chips soldered to PCBs to create a final product for the end customer.

But where did we all learn how to do it? If you're like most electrical engineers, it wasn't in school. Why? Maybe you were in a program more focused on the theoretical side of things and didn't want to focus on practical skills. Maybe you were asked to pick it up on your own when diving into a senior design seminar. Maybe you didn't go to school for electronics, but ended up working on them over time. Maybe you were in school before CAD programs were widely available, as they are today. It's even possible you still don't know how to layout a PCB. So where do most people learn how to build the boards that surround us on a daily basis? Most engineers learn PCB layout on the job (or at least in a non-official setting). They learn from mentors, on their own, or from the technical literature from the CAD companies. Maybe they go to a seminar for the basics of how a specific CAD program works, but the underlying reasons you hook two things together aren't necessarily a focus. The really critical stuff--the key to good layouts--is hardly ever covered in any official training setting, especially when diving into the high frequency or precision analog domains. These are skills and nuances that must be learned over many years and countless late nights in the lab (banging your head on the lab bench).

Many of the stories from the "Tales From The Cube" section of EDN (and many more that don't get published) can be traced back to layout issues. The basis for many articles on mixed-signal design from the experts like Howard Johnson and Henry Ott cover many of these same topics.

Things may be changing though. A new program called Contextual Electronics aims to teach many of these skills. The program is two 8 week courses that cover the design of a PCB (in the first session) and then the assembly and testing of the PCB (in the second session). Members are remote and instruction is done by both static video (via the course website) and live video (via Google hangouts). There is a social component, so participants will be able to work together in groups of 8-10, discussing the pitfalls of PCB design and finding a best practice for creating a new design. Prices range from $75 to $625 per session, depending on level of engagement.

The course includes a section related to learning KiCad, the open source PCB CAD program (recently discussed in a post on EETimes). This program has seen an uptick in popularity in recent years; a hardware group at CERN has committed to improving the structure of the software with the ultimate goal of making this an official tool in their development cycle.

The program might not be a great fit for experienced hardware engineers that have already learned a company-mandated CAD program (Altium, Cadence, PADS, etc), but the lack of licensing fees could benefit many small businesses or people who are personally interested in learning how to build their own hardware. With the rise in open-source hardware, many may find that using open tools will benefit them as they are able to take existing projects and "fork" them into new hardware revisions. The course also uses GitHub for revision tracking and sharing the design once the course is over. https://crbtech.in/programmes/electrical-design-training-programme

Many beginners do not know how to start learning hardware circuits. In fact, the "hardware circuit" is composed of a part of the "unit module circuit". The so-called "unit module circuit" includes: various regulated power supply circuits (like the LM7805, LM2940, LM2576, etc.), operational amplifier circuit (LM324, LM358, etc.), comparator circuit (LM339), MCU minimum system, H-bridge motor drive circuit (MC33886, L298, etc.), RC/LC filter, FET/triode Electronic switches and so on. Now do not think that the resistor and capacitor are the most basic, "unit module circuit" is the most basic thing, only the "unit module circuit" can achieve the most basic functions: voltage regulation, signal processing, driving load and so on. Dividing the whole circuit into several parts will make it easier to learn. Today, I understand the power supply and understand the operational amplifier tomorrow... I can understand the general circuit diagram in a week, mainly in comprehension and breakdown. Some of the unit circuit Baidu pictures are, there is nothing to check and ask more questions. It is not enough for light to understand the circuit diagram, but also has the ability to do it. 1, first can follow the "unit module circuit diagram" on the breadboard to build a circuit, so that it can work properly (see the components PDF data, understand the component pin layout and various electrical parameters); 2, then you can solder a circuit on the universal circuit board (hole plate), which can be composed of several parts of the unit circuit (here "wiring" must learn more! Useful for going to school); 3, on the basis of learning Protel and other circuit design software, can design a whole piece of circuit board PCB. 4.
