Online Electroplating Basics Training Course

Due to the prevailing COVID 19 pandemic it became necessary to curtail face-to-face training in lecture rooms as had been the format since 2003. Additionally, with the deteriorating financial climate we noted that cash strapped companies were postponing training for staff. With each passing year we experienced decreasing enrolment.
With the advantage of informative feedback from trainees and employers who benefited from our conventional training sessions we have redesigned our training materials for presentation in an online format.  The third series of our digital  course was presented between September 17 and November 26. As soon as we have enough interest to begin a new group, we'll arrange Session 4.
The time had come to do things differently, and SAMFA has demonstrated that the association is up for the challenge and able to move with the times. In response to the existing conditions we have developed something that is affordable and has proven to be more enjoyable and less stressful for trainees.
Provided that trainees have access to a tablet or a notebook/laptop and a broadband connection they will be able to connect to the online video portal via a password protected dedicated link. Employers may offer the trainees the required facilities at the workplace. If employers prefer, trainees who have a suitable set up may work from home.
We have now seen that the new online Electroplating Basics course has met with approval from the industry at many levels. Maintaining the financial viability of training programmes while lowering the price to below the rate of the previous offering is surely a win-win outcome. It enables us to continue to offer this important training despite the underlying costs continuing to escalate. Visit the Electroplating Training info page for more.
