Advanced through-hole soldering

At Impact Centre For Training, we recognise that skills will continuously improve and so we have developed a series of courses that go hand in hand. This course is the next step from our “introduction to through-hole soldering” and gives you the opportunity to perform advanced hand soldering exercises. This will include hand forming of components using specialised measuring tools, cutting leads to the correct size before soldering and also soldering the components to varied board finishes.

Following on from our introduction course, this advanced course is perfect for all those with basic knowledge and experience of hand soldering. Here we develop techniques essential for quality solder joints and learn to recognise finishes using industry recognised standards to apply and inspect.

Inspection is a very important part of this 2-day course and is combined with some rework techniques which enable us to better understand faults as they occur.

Subjects covered will include advanced hand soldering skills with a range of basic to intricate components, understanding equipment and technology, various alloys and fluxes, ESD procedures and reworking procedures using various methods.

Impact Centre For Training COVID-19 Statement

In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic we would like to assure our customers and suppliers that Impact Centre For Training are closely following the government and relevant authorities’ guidance of the situation. We are doing everything in our power to ensure we’re creating a safe and healthy environment for everyone who are in contact with us.

We will be following guidelines and advice set out by Public Health Wales, ensuring that any changes are implemented immediately.

At this stage, no member of our team or extended staff have any confirmed symptoms of COVID-19, has been in contact with anyone who has contracted the virus, or has recently returned from any effected areas abroad.

Due to the nature of our business where face-to-face interactions are very normal for our daily running, we are taking particular measures to minimise any risk of contracting or spreading the virus. These measures are as follows:

  • For the foreseeable future we have instructed our staff to manage all non-essential meetings via web-based technologies rather than face-to-face
  • Additional cleaning of our entire workspace and equipment
  • Staff working from home where possible
  • Regularly speaking with customers, suppliers and staff to ensure no one is at risk when meeting for scheduled training at either our, or their facility.
  • Continued care and promotion of good hand hygiene

In addition to the above precautions, our  business will be running as usual and we will do everything in our power keep any disruptions at a minimum. If we are made aware of any staff members who have come in to contact with COVID-19 or have contracted it, we will follow all Public Health Wales guidelines at that time.

Please be assured that we are doing everything possible to minimise the risk of this pandemic to our staff, clients and suppliers during this difficult and uncertain time.

If you would like to discuss any of the above with us, please get in touch by e-mailing
