Manual soldering for beginners

Manual solderingCan you repair broken items home-made, but haven't mastered soldering yet? Is your soldering iron dusting in your workshop and waiting for some "better time"? Although your first soldering attempts may have ended with a poor result, don't give up! Don't quit, but consider taking a hands-on soldering course for beginners.

What can you expect

We will train you DIY enthusiasts to use the soldering iron safely. With us you will learn about the soldering process and understand the rules of using specific tools and materials. We will teach you a catalog of good practices, as you will see later, extremely handy for soldering. In addition, we offer you an individual approach to the course of study and we will provide you with all the useful tools, accessories and materials. You will also receive a didactic outline, containing a collection of important information, which can be especially helpful during the first, independent soldering attempts.

The form of the course

The training is conducted on the basis of an electronic platform (theoretical classes) and stationary workshops. Both parts of the course, ie theoretical and practical-technical, are weekend-based, which makes it easier to combine training with work and study. It is worth mentioning that we want the students of our course for beginner soldering iron operators to use the full potential of the training. That is why the audience's activity is welcome. We invite you in particular to:

  • active participation in classes (asking questions, sharing your own observations and experiences),
  • get acquainted with the didactic materials provided during the course,
  • self-study (additional publications recommended during the course),
  • performing the prescribed tasks.

Soldering ironSyllabus

In the theoretical as well as practical-technical classes, you will find topics such as:

  • Theory of soldering basics,
  • Selected examples of works and repairs in the field of electronics,
  • Selected types of soldering irons and rules of their operation,
  • Basic soldering errors (case studies),
  • Soldering - practice,
  • Repair of wires (making soldered connections and desoldering),
  • Health and Safety i Fire.

Why is it worth taking part in the training

As you yourself know, spending time in activities that you enjoy or allow you to perform your duties satisfactorily is invaluable. It is worth cultivating your hobby, a flair for technical work, and maybe even talent. At this point, it must also be said that developing skills and interests, in the case of soldering work, gives many tangible benefits and creates opportunities for:

  • acquiring knowledge about the theoretical basics of soldering,
  • mastering the soldering activities in practice,
  • exchange of experiences with other people with similar motivations and interests,
  • increasing your DIY skills,
  • gaining more self-confidence during effective soldering work at home and in the workshop,
  • developing passion.

Students during classes in the training roomA few words about soldering

Soldering is a type of technology used to connect metal elements using the so-called February. Solder is a metallic substance and a binder in the brazing process. The melting point of the solder should be significantly lower than the melting point of the materials to be joined. The first soldering techniques are believed to have existed since ancient Egypt. As civilization progressed, these techniques were not only perfected, but also new soldering methods were developed. Today, soldering is used in many industries and is also used at home. DIY enthusiasts eagerly use this activity to connect wires or repair various electronic devices, e.g. computer components. Of course, soldering requires skills to avoid mistakes, i.e.

  • air bubbles in the soldered joint,
  • incorrect location of soldered elements as a result of their uncontrolled movement,
  • wrong amount of binder,
  • fracture of the soldered connection,
  • wrong shape of the joint,
  • phenomenon of the so-called cold solders,
  • ingress of unauthorized substances from the outside into the joint structure,
  • using the wrong binder,
  • inadequate temperature of the soldering,
  • choosing 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.
