Basic Soldering Skills for Electronics is a 45-hour hands-on training course designed to provide the student with the necessary knowledge and skill to attain proficiency in producing high reliability solder connections. This course is suitable for individuals with no prior knowledge of electronic soldering techniques as well as the advanced electronic student. This course covers approximately ten individual soldering lessons that are based on current industrial, military, and NASA practices. Basic printed-circuit board (PCB) rework techniques as component removal and PCB repair of open traces and lifted pads.


Recommended Preparation:
Concurrent enrollment in ELEC 300 (formerly ELEC 200).

  The student will be able to:
     1. identify and determine the value of common components
        normally connected to electronic circuits by soldering.
     2. explain the soldering process.
     3. select the proper small hand tools required for soldering.
     4. prepare and maintain a soldering iron.
     5. demonstrate proper wire stripping and tinning techniques.
     6. solder wires and component leads to turret, cup, bifurcated,
        hook, and pierced terminals.
     7. solder axial and radial lead components, DIP and flat packs,
        and TO-5 packs to a PCB.
     8. demonstrate component removal by wicking and continuous
     9. demonstrate the repair of open traces and lifted pads from
        single and double sided PCBs.
