1. Study this page contents in full

All the information on this page is important - please ensure you allocate the time and attention to work through it properly

2. Take the Makespace General Safety Quiz

3. Take the EquipmentTraining Quiz

4. Take the Practical demonstration

At your practical demonstration the trainer will confirm that you have absorbed the necessary information and authorise you to use the equipment.

Note: Before you book your hands-on practical safety demonstration with a trainer, you must score 100% on the two quizzes; the General Makespace Safety quiz and the equipment specific operations quiz. You may retake both quizzes but do review the materials before doing so. The objective is to learn the safe and effective operation of the equipment. When you have scored 100% on both quizzes please see the next section of this course to book your hands-on practical demonstration with a trainer.

If there is no practical scheduled there, please email:

Lastly please keep in mind that all the trainers at Makespace are volunteers. They, like all Makespace members, give their time to continually improve our community. Do not hesitate to ask for training, or indeed any questions, but please be patient as they make time in their schedules to run the practical assessments.
