CITs are certified for 2 years and must attend a 16-hour recertification class to maintain their certification status. CITs will have the opportunity to review the content of the standard in its current revision as well as discuss any clarification of intent resulting from Technical Committee activities. Testing and workmanship samples are required for successful recertification. This course also provides the Space Addendum, addressing additional requirements that are required to ensure the reliability of soldered electrical and electronic assemblies that must survive the vibration and thermal cyclic environments getting to and operating in space. Only CITs who have successfully completed the J-STD-001F Certification Course can be certified.
