ESA Handsoldering certification (ECSS-Q-ST-70-61/ECSS-Q-ST-70-08)

The ECSS-Q-ST-70-07, ECSS-Q-ST-70-08 and ECSS-Q-ST-70-38 standards have been superseded and replaced by ECSS-Q-ST-70-61.

On the operator certification in manual soldering, certification is done according to ESA (ECSS-Q-ST-70-61/ECSS-Q-ST-70-08) requirements for assembly and soldering of electronic components, including the factors that affect the quality and reliability of manual soldering. When the participants have passed a practical and theoretical test, an approved ESA certificate is issued, which is valid for two years.

The basis for the certification is the ESA and European space specification ECSS-Q-ST-70-61: 'High reliability assembly for surface mount and through hole connections' (replaces ECSS-Q-ST-70-08C).

The certification is of interest to anyone who needs - or wants - to be able to demonstrate a documentable knowledge of manual soldering and assembly processes according to ECSS-Q-ST-70-61.


  • The requirements of ECSS-Q-ST-70-61
  • PCB and design
  • Solderability on components and printed circuit boards
  • Soldering requirements
  • Tools and equipment
  • Individual theoretical and practical test (certification)

Participation in the certification requires a minimum of two years' experience in hand soldering. 

Prior to the certification, the participants must also submit the following to HYTEK:

  • Statement of experience documenting a minimum of two years of experience in hand soldering (download here)
  • Recognized vision test that meets the ESA requirements (download here)
  • Completed ESA Course Application Form (download here)
