Safety Training

Some of the tools in our space are dangerous and require basic safety training. This training is included in your membership. Classes are kept small so each student get a lot of personal attention, and each training session is themed for a certain set of tools – just take the sessions you need to get going. Contact us by email to schedule a training session.
