Introduction to Electroplating

Designed and sanctioned by CASF for Canadian electroplaters and suppliers, the Introduction to Electroplating course consists of 12 modules taught over 2 days. Each lesson provides valuable and practical information about the basic science and process of electroplating. Upon completion of this course, students will have a basic understanding of electroplating processes and principles, electrochemistry, the equipment used in electroplating, maintenance techniques and the best practices for successful electroplating. This is an excellent introduction for those new to the electroplating industry.

This edition is taking place in the Montreal area at the Tecnickrome Aeronatique plant. Danielle Miousse is once again hosting for us. And as mentioned, it is the first time that the French-speaking finishers can fully participate.

Who benefits?

This training course benefits those who have little or no experience or training in electroplating, such as new hires for plating line work or environmental systems personnel, supervisors, sales and account management personnel serving metal finishers, and managers who want an introductory technical primer on the subject. This course will also be helpful for those who wish to progress with more advanced training.


The goal of this course is to provide a basic understanding of electroplating terminology, knowledge of surface treatment and process equipment used in electroplating operations and safe and best practices in the industry. It is often said electroplating is a delicate blend of art and science!

Upon completion of this course, attendees can expect to:

  • Have a basic level of understanding of electricity, math, and chemistry/electrochemistry as it relates to the electroplating process.
  • Have the ability to identify and describe the main equipment and components in the electroplating process.
  • Have a broader understanding of the different kind of finishes commonly applied by the electroplating process.
  • Learn basic troubleshooting and maintenance techniques of an electroplating process.
  • Understand the technology behind electroplating, its uses in industry and the difference between electroplating processes and their benefits.
