Authorization workshops?

What is an authorization workshop, and what does it mean to be authorized? How do I find out when these are held?

Some machines and tools in the makerspaces require training to use safely and properly. An authorization workshop is a short (1.5 - 2 hrs) workshop in which one of our staff will show you the basics of using the tool. Once you complete the workshop, you’re authorized to use the tool on your own - as long as you adhere to the safe and proper use instructions from the workshop!

Workshops are offered on a rotating basis. You can find the schedule of workshops on our Eventbrite page (https://www.eventbrite.com/o/idea-realization-lab-14748190697) or posted in lab itself.
