This class qualifies you to use the Forge metal area if you are wanting to become a Forge member. Or, the class is great for anyone wanting to learn how to appropriately and safely use metal working equipment in their own shop.

This is a 3 day workshop.  You will then come back to complete your practicum.   (*you must attend the practicum if your intention is to join the Forge, must join within 6 weeks of class).  Practicum is where you will show that you are proficient in using the equipment without supervision. 

There are some machine manuals and videos you can access and review here on our website.  There are also some quizzes you will complete after your qualification hands on portion.  Do not do the quizzes before the class.
