A job skill that is valued and needed by employers in Northern Nevada can be acquired through one of Western Nevada Collegeâ€™s electronics technology classes during the spring term.
ET 104: Fabrication and Soldering Techniques is offered during the spring semester at the Carson City campus, Tuesdays, 7 to 9:45 p.m.
â€œIt’s a course that counts towards the Associate of Applied Science Technology degree specializations in general industrial technology or automated systems, â€ said Emily Howarth, a computer information technology professor at WNC. â€œItâ€™s a job skill that is in demand in Northern Nevada.â€
Students will acquire the knowledge and skills to earn proficiency in making and repairing high-reliability solder connections. They will be given extensive hands-on training in the soldering lab, where through-hole and surface-mount techniques will be covered and practiced.
Classes start Tuesday, Jan. 20, and continue through May 16.
