NASF (Washington, D.C.) is hosting an eight-part web-based course this November focusing on chromium plating for engineering applications. The organization says the course, which meets Tuesdays and Wednesdays from noon – 2 p.m. ET for the first four weeks of November, will be useful for operators and supervisors in job and captive shops who perform hard chromium plating operations. NASF also recommends it to sales personnel working for suppliers of hard chromium.
This course will teach participants chemical and electrical principles related to hard chromium plating, Faraday’s law and how to use it to calculate the time required to obtain a target thickness of chrome plating, common plating-related problems, methods of reducing contamination from the plating process and other valuable pieces of insight. NASF says participants will be prepared to take the optional AESF Foundation MSF Certification exam in chromium plating after completing the course.
Tuition for the course is $1,130, with NASF members receiving a discounted rate of $800. Companies that register five or more employees also receive a 10% discount. The registration deadline is October 20th.
