All users of STEAM Studio must have a signed STEAM Studio Safety Contract and Liability Waiver on file with the Studio Technician. The safety contract also has a training record that indicates what tools each student is certified to use without direct supervision. To be certified to use a tool, look through the the Standard Operating procedures in the links above along with the Student Certification Checklists for Wood Shop and/or Student Certification Checklists for Metal Shop to familiarize yourself with the expected skills and knowledge base you should have before scheduling an appointment for certification.
