Hand Soldering Certification

Customize this course by selecting only the days/modules that meet your training requirements. This is a one (1) year certification, but an optional two (2) year certification is available.

Using both lead and lead-free alloys, Hand Soldering Operator Certification introduces the basics of soldering in Wires & Terminals, Through-Hole and Surface Mount Technologies and Rework. Students will learn about electrostatic discharge, industry terminology, equipment familiarization and the accept/reject criteria for all three technologies. Hands-on efforts include the soldering and inspection of five (5) different types of terminal connections; the assembly, soldering, inspection and rework of two (2) through-hole boards with 100 inspection points; and the assembly, soldering, inspection and rework of a surface mount board with over sixty components. This program is a “hands-on” experience. With approximately 75% of the time spent doing, students experience the technology first hand.
