Believe it or not, we generally don't recommend that you hire someone with prior plating experience as your lead man. The reason is that many platers have some bad habits that are hard to break, especially when it comes to Zero Discharge Recovery™ and the environment. It is better to let us train someone from scratch for you. This person does not need to have a chemical degree or anything like that; a high school education is adequate. You just need someone with a willingness to learn, the ability to follow procedures, have good hand-eye coordination, and be handy with tools. This person should also be self motivated, have a working knowledge of basic math and possess overall common sense. Plating Resources, Inc. will provide the needed training in plating techniques beyond that.
