Training Course for Supervisors and Senior Operators

     Electroplating Training
SAMFA has, over the past years, seen 460 participants throughout the country pass through our ever-popular Electroplating Theory & Practice course.  Each year there are more entrants into this interesting industry as well as more existing staff members who are moved into positions of responsibility where it is vital to have a deeper understanding of the subject. Each year we are pleased to be in a position to equip these individuals with the necessary skills to perform their work with confidence in this challenging environment. Our trainees include small business owners, senior operators, line and department managers, engineers and even sales staff.

The course material continues to keep pace with the times, and with each presentation new materials are added and improvements are made.

Subjects are explained in depth and illustrated with PowerPoint visual material and lively animated videos. Material presented is printed in plain English in the manuals that participants receive and so in the one or two week intervals between classes there is ample time to study for the simple test which is done at the start of the next session.

The results are discussed line by line immediately after marking. To maintain standards, the minimum pass mark is 40%. Papers are removed for scrutiny and returned to their owners the following session after capture of the marks to the SAMFA database.

Experience with trainees has demonstrated how valuable this process can be. Questions and comments demonstrate that enhanced understanding encourages trainees to investigate improvements at work that they would not have considered before.  Many of these ideas translate into more efficient throughput and enhanced profitability. With the high cost of chemicals & equipment prevailing, the savings gained by having enlightened staff quickly offsets the costs of training.

The course is divided into nine modules & strives to connect the practical aspects of plating with the underlying chemistry and physics theory.
