Want to join the journey to making and help us build our Nova Labs community? This orientation is your first step. It opens the door to the advanced Yellow and Red tool training and certification, is the passport stamp to much fun and personal satisfaction, and is a prerequisite for membership. Read the following details carefully.
Who should attend? You. If you have had a lab tour and are ready to join the Nova Labs community as a full member, associate member, instructor, or attendee, then taking this class is the next step. This is a mandatory action before REGULARLY using any equipment at the lab, including the laser cutter, woodshop, CNC, thermoformer, 3D printers, soldering station, and Orange Bay.
Do you just want a quick tour and to ask some questions? We welcome you to our monthly FREE Open House tour on the 3rd Sunday of every month. Or just stop by the lab in the evenings. Please sign up so we know how many are coming. The safety walk-though included with the Green Safety Orientation class is longer and focuses on safety and policies of the lab and is intended for people who want to start using the space.
Why is this mandatory and important? Our community is stronger when attendees and members have a common understanding of organizational structure, policies, membership benefits/levels, basic processes, safety procedures, and code of conduct. Green orientation is required for all members and is a prerequisite for safety training classes on the yellow and red level tools.
This is a safety requirement, so please do this.
Prior to the event, please make sure that you have created a Nova Labs account (https://nova-labs.org/auth/register.html).
