2021 Course Descriptions
4-Hour VIRTUAL User/Operator Interactive & Hands-On Training™
Course Description: ESD Certified User/Operator: NASA STD 8739.6B & ANSI/ESD S20.20 ESD Training is designed for the User/Operator that assembles, inspects, tests and handles ESD circuit card assemblies and EEE Parts (ESD Sensitive Devices) or equipment containing EEE Parts sensitive to electrostatic discharges (ESD).
Proper Packaging & handling protocols combined with a clear understanding of sources of static charges and controlling electrostatic charges are presented in a very interactive format and brought to life by NASA’s ESD Technical Authority. Online Multiple Choice exam will be administered to each student.
NASA ESD Program Monitor Training™
2 Day Virtual
1-Day "Hands On" for ARC only
3 Day Virtual "Interactive"
Course Description: 3-Day Virtual Training for NASA, DoD and DOE Civil Servants and Contractors to learn how to verify the ESD Workstations throughout the year for product, packaging and material compliance of flight hardware in the Electrostatic Protective Area (EPA).
For NASA Ames, the student can sign up for a 1-Day Hands On Interactive Course (as part of the 6 ft. Social Distancing requirement) in the RMV laboratory onsite at NASA Ames Research Center to individually learn correct usage of ESD instruments for verification measurements in the EPA. Training Materials will be provided and
online Multiple Choice exam will be administered.
