Membership and Safety Orientation

The Membership and Safety Orientation sessions at Nova Labs ensure safety of you, others nearby, and the equipment. They also provide you with usage instruction to avoid wasting time and materials on the machines at Nova Labs.

You Must Attend One Orientation Session

Before Using The Machine Tools At Nova Labs!



  • Sign a Waiver! For your safety and our peace of mind.

      Hi Amar, did you get into today's orientation? There was one no-show. I'll be at the labs this Saturday 10AM-2PM, if you can make it, I'll run an extra orientation session.
