Soldering iron anatomy and basics
Cored and multicored soldering wires
Soldering station benefits, including hot air rework
Tip selection and use cases for iron work and hot air 
Flux types and practical applications
PCB construction and characteristics
ESD (electrical static discharge)
Soldering through hole and surface-mounted components
Post-solder cleaning and inspection (microscope)
Exploring Surface-Mount Technology (SMT)—DIP, SOIC, PLCC, QFP
Practical application (as time allows)

Hexadecimal vs. ASCII
The anatomy of an EEPROM and recognizing pin location 
How to identify an EEPROM and decode its original manufacture, size, & capacity 
Reading an EEPROM, immobilizer, & ECU memory out-of-circuit
Reading an EEPROM, immobilizer, & ECU memory in-circuit (and its challenges)
Component removal techniques
Solder removal techniques
Verifying read/write data integrity
BIN files for used module replacement and key making
Introduction to microcontrollers (MCU)
In-circuit MCU data harvesting
Connectivity tips and tricks (no diagram present)  
The benefits of a quality microscope
Practical application (as time allows) 
Overview of locksmith related specialty programmers
