For over two decades the Electronics industry has neglected to provide PCB Designer training. The average age of a PCB Designer today is in their late 50s to early 60s. We cannot afford another lost decade because, if we do, all their 20, 30 or 40 years of skill and expertise will have disappeared forever.
Electronic Graduates and Electronic Engineers, Junior and Senior, are now being tasked with filling the PCB Designer’s role, whether they want to or not.
The PCB Design School has been set up to provide training courses to fill this skills gap.
The Foundation Course is a must for anyone now expected to provide PCB Designs. Even experienced Engineers will benefit from attending our 4-day course. The School also provides Courses such as Power Design and Advanced Routing that follow on from the School’s bedrock Foundation Course.
Three very different course objectives.
The School's curriculum at present has set three Courses, the first of which is the Foundation Course. This Course gives your Designs a solid base from which even experienced Electronic Engineers will benefit. Developed by PCB Designers with a wealth of experience in a variety of Electronic fields such as Tele-communications, Motorsport, Oil and Gas Safety, Nuclear, Defence, Electric Power Motors and many other fields.
The Power Design Course and the Advanced Routing Course follow on from the Foundation Course, but with different motives and objectives.
The Foundation Course is the school’s base level course, which we present in an uncomplicated way, and forms the basis of everything we believe in. Basically, it’s our DNA.
The Power Design Course is for Designers who require guidance in Placing and Routing Power Boards.
The Advanced Routing Course is for Designers who require guidance in Placing and Routing complex Designs such as DDR3/4 or multiple Differential pairs, and high pin count BGAs.
The Essential EMC Course is for design engineers and their managers interested in the cost-effective design, layout, manufacturing and assembly practices for printed circuit boards (PCBs) needed in 2023 to help control financial risks.
The Advanced EMC Course covers the Advanced techniques generally needed in 2023 for high-speed digital circuits. The Advanced EMC Course is suitable for experienced designers who have already completed the PCB Design School's Essential EMC course.
Roger Benfield provided me with PCB Design knowledge that was simply not taught when I studied Electronics Engineering
The course was very informative, and good level of introductory knowledge.
Great in-depth lessons that really helped me understand PCB design.
Really good foundation for someone with little knowledge, which will force some good practises on them on real designs.
Even for people who have already experience in PCB design, the Foundation Course will solidify your knowledge and experience.
A brilliant introduction to PCB design.
