Electrostatic Sensitive Discharge ESDS – 1 Day

Introduction – The Challenge We Face

For sensitive electronic components, for example, microprocessors, A static event as small as 5 volts, can have a fatal outcome for the device.

Electrostatic Sensitive Discharge (ESD) training is a major factor in delivering appropriate knowledge across the supply chain as well as to all key line users.

Ensuring safe use and the understanding key is a major component of electrostatic discharge control.

The primary goal of this training is to focus the delegate’s understanding on the requirements of the organisation to manage effectively Electrostatic Discharge Sensitive components and devices.

Who is the Training For?

For anyone either working in the supply chain or physically interacting with ESDS components and equipment either in a workshop environment or engaged in Aircraft Base & Line Maintenance. It will also be of interest to other stakeholders including Quality Assurance & Training Areas.

What are the Benefits of This Training

a) Be able to understand the importance of electrostatic discharge prevention?

b) Gain full awareness regarding the need for an ESD control program in your organisation.

c) Be able to work with the ESD equipment and Protective materials to safely Receive, Use and Despatch ESD Product
