This class is Sparkfun's very popular course that teaches SMD soldering to anyone who thinks they can't possibly solder those little pins. This will be a hands-on class where the students learn techniques to help them solder surface mount components. There is a minimum age requirement of 15 years old, and it is highly recommended that you have a strong background in soldering, as basic soldering skills will not be covered. It is also highly recommended that you be comfortable with soldering, although you don't need to be an expert.

I'm OK with the start time and we'll take it that we show up with 25 kits and cap the class there.
