In this special edition pre-APEX newsletter BEST is pleased to tell you about:
BEST Video Soldering Tips
NEW-MELF Removal Video
BEST Instructors have put together video demonstrations of common hand soldering tips and skills. These are not designed to be in place of live one on one training where repetitive skills and subsequent one on one feedback is given. Rather, they are quick refreshers designed to be viewed if a specific skill has not been practiced in a while.
Register at APEX for PD-48 Practical Tips for Reballing Devices to be held on Monday March 31, 2008 from 2:00-5:00 PM. BEST instructors will be teaching this hands-on oriented class.
