Cleanroom protocols course launches to tackle semiconductor skills shortage

13 Chwefror 2023

Professionals in a cleanroom environment

We are pleased to present the first in a series of short CPD courses for the compound semiconductor sector, as part of the CSconnected SIPF project.

The Cleanroom Protocols course is primarily designed for those who are new to the semiconductor industry, or those considering a career in the sector, and is one of five CPD courses being launched by the University in 2023, to help address the urgent need to increase semiconductor skills capability.

This online bite-sized CPD course provides an overview of what it is like to work in a cleanroom environment and covers typical working practices as well as general principles for safe working.

The concise, asynchronous format of the course makes an ideal training resource to embed into onboarding and induction programmes.

Skills development is a key focus of CSconnected Strength in Places Fund (SIPF), a £43M 55-month project part-funded through UK Research and Innovation’s flagship Strength in Places Fund, and has deliverables in CPD activities.

Skills are essential to enabling the growth of the CSconnected cluster with the number of jobs expected to more than double over the next three years, with the CPD element of the CSconnected SIPF project supporting the development of the skilled workforce for the South Wales region.

Kate Sunderland, CPD Project Manager for CSconnected SIPF, said:

We are delighted to launch the first of our new CPD courses, which will help increase relevant skills in the region. This Cleanroom Protocols course is specifically aimed at those new to, or thinking of entering, the industry. It will be of particular interest to companies within the CSconnected cluster but is also open to anyone across the globe. It is a short, asynchronous course, which participants can take in their own time, so is ideally placed to become part of an onboarding or induction package. 2023 will be a busy year, with four more CPD courses on the way, covering topics in electronics, photonics, etching and wire bonding.
