Department Description
Soldering TrainingSoldering is a joining method used for a wide range of parts, including delicate electronic components. Solder is a metal alloy designed to melt at very low temperatures, and various methods of soldering can be used to join parts together. Although most soldering done today is automated, manual soldering is an important skill for assembly technicians, especially for repair and rework.

These classes address the knowledge and techniques required to produce high-quality manually soldered joints. They also provide an overview of the basic manual soldering equipment and the proper safety precautions for soldering. Intermediate-level classes focus on differences in soldering alloys, including lead-free solders, and also on the proper soldering technique for joining PCB components.
