Electronics Soldering SBU

Learn to assemble circuit boards with an iron and solder.

A soldering kit is required for this class. You can purchase one of our stock kits from our store or in person at the time of the class. If you have your own basic (through hole, not surface mount) soldering project, it’s also possible to bring that in but please seek instructor approval first. A future course will cover surface mount (SMT) soldering.

The soldering kits cost $10 and the class is $10 for non-members or free for members. Join as a member and get a whole month of SBU classes for free!

    I enjoyed the class,and always found hands on training a great benefit. I have done soldering with stain glass and making jewelry in the past but its great to talk to someone who knows the trade lingo of electronics and teach soldering and share a understanding of types of assembly and production procedures used in the trade especially when i want to expand my skills in this area. GREAT HELP

    Hi, I have a couple of spare failed prototype boards that I would like to bring in for this course, if that is OK?

      Hi Ross, if they are through hole boards, that should be fine for you to use for your project.
