"How to Solder" Training Kit

If you are teaching brand new soldering techs about the basics of soldering, then the Learning How to Solder kit is for you. It features both through-hole and SMT parts, as well as a "real" PCB with ground plains that emulate real life soldering situations. No more of those cheap "pretend" boards that do not represent the real world!


These kits are also used in the BEST Soldering 101 course. In the course, students are introduced to the knowledge and hands-on skills for placing both through-hole and surface mount technologies. The student will be exposed to classroom lecture and hands-on skill development. 

For any questions regarding the kit or the Soldering 101 course, please contact Alex Conley ( at 224-387-3256.

RF Shield Rework

BEST has expertise on RF shield rework. We have processed thousands of different RF shields-both one, two and three piece designs. BEST can either perform the final shield placement after testing without disturbing the integrity of the shield OR remove a shield and replace it after reworking an underlying component.

If you have any questions, please contact Laura Ripoli ( at 224-387-3255.
