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 push button 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

- Qty (1) SMT capacitor

- Qty (1) Through-hole switch

- Qty (7) SMT resistors

See BEST’s FREE videos to learn how it is assembled if you are learning on your own.

 The guide for users, including which parts go where can be found here.

If you want to use this as a means to screen employees our master trainers, you can take high resolution pictures of both the primary and secondary sides of the PCB and we  will inspect to IPC standards-either class 2 or class 3 and give you an independent opinion. Click the "Get Analysis" option at checkout. You will get a summary comment sheet from BEST based on these photos from an IPC J-STD-001 Master Instructor. Allow 3-5 business days.

Please allow 1 - 14 days for your order to ship, depending on quantity.

Go screening board

These boards are what we use to screen soldering candidates who say that they can solder. It is realistic and weeds out the wheat from the chaff.

Thanks for the help

I liked the fast delivery and the realistic PCBs that are part of this kit. I will buy again for training "newbies" on soldering.
