Learning  How to Solder Training Kit component pieces

If you are trying to instruct new electronic technicians, high schoolers, or DIYers in the skill of soldering and do not want to instruct them on home made PCBs that are not representative of the type parts or the types of surface finish you would expect in a real electronics project, then use the BEST "Learning How to Solder" Training Kit.

Unlike the rest of the other soldering kits out there, the BEST "Learning How to Solder" Training Kit features BOTH through-hole and SMT components. Not only will you be introduced to a typical mixed technology board, you will be soldering on a real life board. This board features a ground plane for the LEDs mimicking what you may see in the electronics industry. This means you will have to learn the patience needed for soldering the parts loaded and connected to the ground plane.

After you have soldered the provided components to the board, you will be left with a working "decision maker." The LEDs will flash sequentially when the pushbutton is initiated and after a few seconds, only one LED will be active, leaving you with a "decision." An instruction sheet and overlay will be emailed to you when you place an order.

What you will need to put this kit together:

Soldering Iron                                                     Solder (flux cored, 0.020” diameter)

Small and Medium Chisel tip                                Isopropyl alcohol

Kim wipes                                                           Liquid flux –no clean

Diagonal cutters                                                  Needlenose pliers

ESD wrist strap w/proper grounding

9 volt battery (Kit does NOT include battery)

What the kit includes:

- Qty (1) PCB, immersion silver finish, 0.062" thick

- Qty (1) battery terminal with stripped wires

- Qty (10) Through-hole LEDs

- Qty (2) Though-hole capacitors

- Qty (1) SOIC 16 SMT component

- Qty (1) SOIC 14 SMT component

    Realistic Kit

    Posted by Jason F on 30th Mar 2019

    I took a little longer than I would suspect to get 20 kits. They are nice becuase they are real with both throughhole and SMT parts. The board is also real life. It also does something when the students build it.

    Nice little product

    Posted by Quinn D on 21st Mar 2019

    This has good support material and best of all it is a real world board (unlike some of the other hobbyist boards) and the students have soemthing to take home at the end of class!

    Great way to test people

    Posted by Susan G on 26th Oct 2018

    Lots of people come in saying they know electronics and how to solder. I test them on component identification and soldering at the same time after we screen them in the interview process.
