If you’ve ever found yourself wondering how something is made, you are already starting with the right mindset. Soldering, brazing, and welding have been around since ancient times, going back as far as 3000BC in the Sumerian and Mesopotamian regions. Then, it was primarily used to make swords, cookware, and jewelry, but now, it’s all about electronics. It’s a vital skill our technological world cannot live without. Your soldering certification is also applicable in other fields, such as plumbing, machinery, and metalworks.
