This course develops two distinct skill sets in the student. The first skill set are the skills related to soldering and unsoldering of thru-hole and surface mount components onto printed circuit boards. The student will also develop hand skills through the application and use of hand and power tools as they fabricate and/or assemble various cables and project items. The troubleshooting section of the course develops the student’s rudimentary skill to logically search for, diagnose and strategize to find single faults in pre-faulted electronic circuits. The student will be instructed in selecting appropriate measurements using various electronic test equipment to aid their search.
