Manual soldering for beginners

manual soldering

With us, you will learn about the soldering process and how to use specific tools and materials. We will teach you the skills you need to use during the related tasks. In addition, we offer an individual approach to each student and provide all useful tools and accessories. We will also provide you with teaching materials, containing a collection of important information that can be particularly helpful for your first independent attempts at soldering. 

The form of the course 

The training is based on an electronic platform (theoretical classes) and on-site workshops. On request, by prior arrangement, a weekend course is available to enable training to be combined with work and study. It is worth mentioning that we are keen to ensure that the students of our course for beginner soldering iron operators get the most out of the training. That is why the activity of the participants is welcome. We particularly invite you to: 

  • Active participation in class (asking questions, sharing own insights and experiences), 
  • Familiarise yourself with the teaching materials provided on the course, 
  • Self-study (additional publications recommended during the course), 
  • Carry out prescribed tasks. 


In a programme of both theoretical and practical-technical activities, you will find topics such as: 

  • Theory of soldering basics, 
  • Repair in the area of electronics, 
  • Types of soldering irons and rules for their use, 
  • Basic soldering errors (case studies), 
  • Soldering - practice, 
  • Repair of wires (making soldered connections and desoldering), 
  • Health and safety rules i Fire

Why take part in the training?

For soldering work, the course offers many tangible benefits and opportunities: 

  • Acquisition of theoretical knowledge of the basics of soldering, 
  • Mastering soldering operations in practice, 
  • Exchange experiences with others with similar motivations and interests, 
  • Improving your skills, 
  • Gain greater confidence in carrying out effective soldering work at home and in the workshop. 

A few words about soldering 

Soldering is a type of technology used to join metal components using what is known as solder. Solder is the metallic substance and the binder in the soldering process. The melting point of the solder should be significantly lower than the melting point of the materials to be joined. It is believed that the first soldering techniques existed as far back as ancient Egypt. As civilisation progressed, these techniques were not only perfected, but also new methods of soldering were developed. Today, soldering is used in many industries and in the home. Workers like to use this activity when joining wires or repairing various electronic devices, such as computer components. Of course, soldering requires skills to avoid mistakes, such as: 

  • The formation of air bubbles in the soldered joint, 
  • Misplacement of soldered components due to uncontrolled movement, 
  • Inappropriate amount of binder, 
  • Cracking of the soldered connection, 
  • Unsuitable connector shape, 
  • The phenomenon of so-called cold soldering, 
  • The ingress of unauthorised substances from outside into the joint construction, 
  • Use of the wrong binder, 
  • Inappropriate temperature of soldering carried out, 
  • Selection of the wrong soldering method. 

You should avoid rush and remember about accuracy and precision, because the purpose of soldering is to obtain a good quality joint.
