As you indicate you are a defense contractor, you will need to review your customers' purchase order requirements, whether a prime aerospace contractor or direct military / government contracts. Likely your will need to "chem-film" or aluminum conversion coat (Alodine is a trade name), likely you will either certify to the Mil-DTL-5541 [link is to free spec at Defense Logistics Agency, dla.mil] or a customer specification (like Boeing's BAC 5719). These usually do not impose prescriptive training requirements, but you likely will have flowed-down quality system requirements, such as AS9100 (a derivative of ISO9000) that will have generic requirements to develop an operator training and qualification internal program. This will require third-part audit and accreditation. Customers' contracts may also require another third-party audit and certification to AS7108 (Nadcap Chemical Processing Requirements)which again have generic training requirements. Additionally, as this is a chromated product, you may have state and local training requirements for safety, health and waste treatment. The material is toxic and not environmentally-friendly.
