Meet the TR53 Certified ESD Auditor Program Requirements

The ASCC TR53 Certified ESD Auditor 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 Auditor 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. Students who pass the certification exam will be listed on the Prostat University web site. The ASCC certification is a lifetime certification. Students will never be charged an annual fee or pay for mandatory classes to maintain their certification. Starting in 2022, any changes in either TR53 or ANSI/ESD S20.20 that impact TR53 measurements will be communicated to all ASCC certified auditors free of charge.
