BEST Releases Sustainable Version of J-STD-001 Soldering Kit


Reading time ( words)

BEST Inc. has released an updated version of the Revision "F" IPC-JSTD-001 training kit. This kit is used in IPC training classes so associates can get certified to the standard. It features the boards and components needed for classroom practice and learning-all in a neatly-packaged box.

Not only does this kit meet the requirements for the training but the kit box itself has a purpose after the class is done. It can be used to store components or materials in the associates work area. BEST has even developed a sustainability program for larger orders where the kit containers can be re-used by refilling them thereby saving the plastic containers from the landfill.

Alex Conley, product manager for training services, says, "Customers really like the fact that the components are so neatly packaged and present themselves well in the classroom."

Products can be purchased directly, at Amazon, or at its company store at soldertools.net.
