My question seems OFF-TOPIC, but I do believe there might be people here(at electronics_stackEx) who know the answer. And I really don't know a better place to post this.

Here Goes the question: What kind of education qualification do electronics assembly line workers possess?

I don't know the nature of this kind of work. enter image description here

IPC have international standard courses on assembly: http://www.eytraining.org.uk/t/Services/IPC-Training.aspx

The five IPC certification programmes are:

IPC A-610 Acceptability in Electronic Assemblies is for quality assurance/visual acceptance of electronic assemblies based on the world's most widely used electronics assembly acceptability standard

IPC J-STD-001 Requirements for Soldered Electrical and Electronic Assemblies is for hand and machine soldering processes and material requirements. It includes hands-on training.

IPC A-600 Acceptability of Printed Boards is for quality assurance/visual acceptance of unpopulated printed circuit boards and explores the specifications, problems and faults that occur with the manufacture of PCBs.

IPC/WHMA A-620 Requirements and Acceptance for Cable and Wire Harness Assemblies is for improving the quality of your cables and harnesses, reducing errors and costs.

IPC 7711/7721 Rework, Modification and Repair of Electronic Assemblies is for the rework, repair and modification of electronic assemblies, rather than scrapping them. It features hands-on training.
