PCB 201: Introduction to PCB Design & Fabrication

This helps to expose the participants on how to make PCBs. This course is a 100% Hand-on course where students will eventually produce their own PCB boards based on their design.

Course Duration

  • Five days at 5 hours per day.

Course Materials

  • Comprehensive delegate handbook.

Course Objectives

  • Inculcate the step-by-step process of fabricating PCBs.
  • Design circuits and finally use them to produce drill files and Gerber files to be used in the PCB process.


  • PCB 101.


  • Drilling the PCB Board
  • Electroplating PCB board
  • Producing artwork
  • Laminating
  • Exposing artwork
  • Developing Board
  • Etching Board
  • Resist stripping
  • Tinning
  • Screen printing
  • Populating the Board
  • Soldering of components
  • Testing components
  • Burning the firmware on a PIC microcontroller

Participants will each produce a PCB board on their own on completion of the course
