Soldering is a core skill that is involved in electronic prototyping and electronic manufacture. This technical masterclass will guide you through the process of developing your hole-soldering technique and reflecting on the quality and speed of your work.
You will start by learning about the 7-steps to developing excellence in your area of study, as well how you can improve your productivity, work organisation and management in the Engineering sector.
Once you have completed these stages, watch a 6-part video demonstration which offers a step-by-step guide to the technique of through-hole soldering. The masterclass then guides you to perform the tasks shown in the videos and offers a set of downloadable resources to assist you in your practice.
Suitable for Level 3 (Level 6 in Scotland) learners, this masterclass takes around 2 hours to complete. You are required to successfully answer a series of multiple choice questions at the end of your learning before being awarded a downloadable WorldSkills UK certificate.
In this technical masterclass, you will learn to:
set up a safe working space for soldering
identify and use a selection of PPE
identify and use hand tools to support component preparation
create an excellent solder fillet
demonstrate functionality of the circuit that has been soldered
