Electroplating Workers

Advancement Prospects

Many workers in electroplating shops work with only one type of metal. Platers who take classes to learn new techniques and how to work with other metals open up opportunities to move into areas requiring more responsibility and skill. In addition, this training increases the number and types of electroplating shops in which a plater can work, thus providing greater job flexibility. Some platers may be able to increase their pay levels by taking training in additional metal-finishing methods. With increased knowledge and skill, workers can move into supervisory positions in which they coordinate and direct the activities of other workers. Others may become chemists or chemical engineers.
