Introduction to hand soldering of surface mount devices

Hand soldering surface mount devices

For many staff, moving from conventional through-hole soldering to working with surface mount components can appear daunting. New techniques are required and new skills have to be mastered. This course will raise the confidence of staff approaching working with surface mount devices for the first time as well as ensure that more experienced staff are applying the correct techniques to avoid costly failures.

The course has been designed for staff unfamiliar or new to soldering SMDs as well as anyone looking to improve their knowledge and is, ideally, followed by Electronics Yorkshire’s Advanced hand soldering of surface mount devices (includes reworking techniques) course for enhancing skills and understanding.
