Meet the ESDA Certified TR53 Technician program requirements

Advanced Static Control Consulting (ASCC) has been endorsed by the ESD Association as an official, third-party, service provider for training that can lead to attendee certification as a "Certified TR53 Technician".

The ASCC TR53 Certified ESD Technician Training program will teach attendees how to make the measurements to verify that the installed ESD controls meet the requirements of ANSI/ESD S20.20 using the ESD Association’s Technical Report ESD TR53.

Participants will learn how to make compliance verification measurements including worksurfaces, flooring, ionizers, packaging and static control garments. More importantly, attendees will learn how to determine the root cause of any Electrostatic Discharge controls that fail to meet the established requirements.

3 Day Course Including a Certification Exam

The TR53 Certified ESD Technician Training course consists of one day of classroom training, a one-day, hands-on workshop and an optional certification exam on the third day.

Attendees that pass the optional exam will be provided with certification credentials by ASCC. ASCC will also register all successful candidates with the ESD Association and pay the certification fee on their behalf.
