Your anodizing business is my business

Anodizing School is the result of an ever growing demand from the industry for more knowledge about anodizing of aluminum.

AluConsult has therefore created the first of a series of online training for both suppliers and customers of anodized aluminum.

Anodizing School offers flexible training and knowledge in anodizing:

  • E-learning where and when you need it - no need for on-site training
  • No need for classroom training so minimal disruption to daily operations 
  • Knowledge for technicians and end-users in all anodizing processes
  • Expertise from a trainer with over 25 years´ industry experience
  • Impartial and independent guidance

The course guides you in better than best practice for anodizing aluminum

  • Who this course is for

    This course has been created for those working in anodizing companies who want to increase their knowledge about the basic steps involved in anodizing. Those who take this course could be operators, technicians, supervisors and managers.

  • What and how you will learn

    You will learn about aluminum and its alloys, corrosion of aluminum, the various steps in the anodizing process, equipment, waste treatment, testing and quality. This e-learning can be taken when and where you choose, and is presented as a series of images and text with Anne Deacon Juhl guiding you throughout.

  • Why is this learning so important

    After many years of working in the global anodizing industry, it is very clear that knowledge gaps exist. Some of these gaps are quality, stability of the process, corrosion failures and inconsistent alloy quality. This course will help you to be more confident about the decisions you make along each step of the anodizing process.

You will get access to the following:

  • 12 modules with visual lectures
  • Online group sessions between each module to help you digest and learn
  • A closed LinkedIn “Introduction to Anodizing” group 
  • Freedom to learn when you want, and at your own pace
  • The course can be seen over and over again, paused, and is actually a reference document for you


This course is for those working in the anodizing industry who need more knowledge about the basic steps involved in anodizing.  This course is aimed at operators, technicians, supervisors and managers.

The 12 modules cover aluminum and its alloys, corrosion of aluminum, the various steps in the anodizing process, equipment, waste treatment, testing and quality.

She was a research scientist for five years at the Technical University of Denmark and did her Ph.D thesis on "Pulse Anodizing of Extruded and Cast Aluminum Alloys." During this period, she established a personal network in Europe, the U.S., and Scandinavia. As a consultant within the field of finishing of aluminum she has worked with all different kinds of chemical and electrochemical surface treatments, such as anodizing – type I, II and III, chromating, electroplating, and electroless plating. Deacon Juhl worked for three years in an anodizing job shop as the development and quality manager, where she successfully bridged the gap between theory and practice. For the last 16 years she has worked full-time consulting customers in order to enhance the value of their aluminum products – with a break of five years at one of her customers, an Aerostructure company as Supervisor for the surface department.
