IIn this issue we bring you several new solder training courses-all with a lead-free emphasis. BEST, in conjunction with Cookson Electronics Materials (Alpha) and ALC, a premier educational materials company, bring you the first in a series of computer-based lead-free solder training programs entitled "Lead-Free Orientation". Our combined subject matter experts have been working for several months to bring their combined knowledge together in an easy-to-use format. This LAN or web-based training is a cost-effective, must-use primer for implementing lead-free in your organization. In addition, with the advent of the revised JSTD-001 and A610 standards, new training courses with a continued emphasis on lead-free hand soldering skills or inspection criteria, have been developed. We invite you to take a look at how we can help you make the transition to lead-free materials. Thanks!
