Blackfox is opening its facilities to in-person training for the electronics manufacturing industry with a thorough and documented safety plan for all.  While the health and safety of all our employees and customers is the highest priority during the COVID-19 crisis and as we continue to operate during these rapidly evolving and uncertain times, the health and safety of those entering our facilities continues to be a top priority.

At Blackfox, we do not take working under these conditions lightly, and have made many changes to mitigate the risk of exposure in our facilities.  Click here for more information

IPC Certification Extensions:

IPC is offering complimentary 30-day extensions for all CIT hands-on certifications that expire in May 2020. IPC will not be offering any additional extensions for certifications that can be renewed through remote proctoring. 

CIS students that are certified in programs expiring in May 2020 with optional workmanship modules may request a 60-day extension of these modules after they have renewed the mandatory module through either remote or in-person testing.  The student must then complete the optional workmanship modules in-person within the 60 days.

CIS and CIT students need to request an extension to an expiring certification through the IPC Certification Help Desk. The current policy still applies to the certification expiration date for all certifications that were obtained by the temporary extension.

Remote IPC Training & Testing Option:

If preferred, Blackfox is offering online IPC training and certification in either English or Spanish from the comfort of your home or office. The following lecture-based classes are offered remotely for CIS, CSE and CIT certification:

IPC-A-610

IPC/WHMA-A-620

IPC-A-600

IPC-6012

IPC J-STD-001 CIS MODULE 1 ONLY

Please visit www.blackfox.com to see our full course calendar including in-person and online classes.

As always, the health, safety and well-being of Blackfox customers, associates and communities is of paramount concern.  We continue to monitor this quickly evolving situation and are here to assist our customers as needed.  Thank you to our Blackfox customers!
