The Electroplating & Surface Finishing Parts course presents a broad range of information related to the fundamentals of electroplating, and methods of preparing parts for various surface finishing processes. NASF/AESF says that at the conclusion of the course, students should be prepared to take the Certified Electro-Finisher (CEF) exam. If the student receives a 70% or higher on the exam, they will receive one credit towards the Master Surface Finisher (MSF) designation and will be awarded the CEF designation — the world’s most respected and most widely recognized designation for finishing professionals.
