October 2020
Dear Electronics Colleague -

Halloween, in addition to being a favorite of kids, has become a real favorite adult holiday. With social distancing, mask wearing and not being in tight enclosed spaces (like someone's porch yelling trick or treat) I am sure Halloween will look different this year.

Below is one of the creative Halloween masks I have seen that tells us about what is going on.

Happy trick or treating!

Only a few dates remaining in 2020 for 
BEST's Mobile Training Center 
The BEST mobile training center brings solder training to you in the form of a fully-outfitted mobile training center. All of the equipment including soldering stations, microscopes, fume extraction, ESD flooring and all of the required  hand tools are part of the equipment found inside the lab on wheels. In addition there are screens at the workstations to see a magnified view of the instructor demos. Students are kept comfortable in the climate-controlled space.  This is the perfect way to eliminate the students' need to travel. The number of dates available in 2020 are down to only a few open weeks. Contact JL at jl@solder.net to discuss your requirements and secure one of the few time slots still open.
