TQ circuit board designer Benjamin Ullrich has completed a comprehensive continuing education course from of the German Professional Association for Electronics Design (FED) and the global trade and standardization organization IPC. He is now a member of an exclusive club. Before, there were a total of only 18 graduates who had achieved the title of “Certified Electronics Designer (ZED)” after successfully completing all ZED Levels I – IV.
The “Certified Electronics Designer (ZED)” is a qualification for circuit board designers according to standard specifications based on the IPC guidelines. The educational concept consists of professional development training and four modules that build upon one another. TQ circuit board designer Benjamin Ullrich has successfully finished the program and was certified both by the FED and by IPC. The certificates confirm that the graduates have technical knowledge, both broad-based and specialized, in the design of circuit boards and electronics assemblies. The educational content is based on both present and future technological challenges.

Decisions essential for the planned product are made during the development effort. The continuing education of our staff members is very important to us so that we can provide the best advice to our customers and so that we can transform their wishes into reality with up-to-date engineering knowledge. The technical qualification and continuing personal development of our staff is part of our company philosophy. We are all the more glad about the certification of Benjamin Ullrich according to the highest standards,” explains Reiner Gerstner, Chief Marketing Officer of the TQ Group.
