Signing up is easy and is a great way to get oriented to everything we have to offer. Everyone must get checked in and sign the Liability Waiver, and then we’ll be happy to show you around!

After you complete your registration you will be gifted a free Day Pass with 10 minutes towards green level tool certifications and you’ll also get your very own pair of safety glasses! Safety glasses are also an indicator of your level of proficiency on a majority of the tools.

A novice, from a Master, a visitor to a shop monitor. this coloring system helps us figure out if any one needs help, or who could provide advise about the tools and techniques.  If you have a basic question about the facilities please find a Shop Monitor with the Orange and they can help with any information you may need.
