About this Event
Required training to use the CNC Plasma Cutter. The class is 3 hours long. The first hour is an introduction to the procedures, rules, and software for this machine. The next 2 hours is be hands-on experience. Each student must complete a cut to qualify to use the CNC plasma cutter.
The classroom AND hands-on portion is scheduled for 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM. The quirks of the calendar scheduling software may not make that clear.
This class is limited to 6 seats so that each student can complete hands-on training with the software.
No-show (failure to be in class by 10 minutes after class start time) or cancellation within 1 day forfeits the class fee and you will need to sign up and pay again.
The class fee goes toward consumables on the plasma cutter.
Note: Due to the number of no-shows and late cancellations, you must be approved by the instructor to attend the class. I will compare applicants against recent no-shows and, if you're on the list, you will need to provide an explanation for your previous behavior and why you'll make it this time.
Special Considerations and Warnings
Please wear appropriate clothing: long sleeve natural-fiber shirt (NO synthetics!), jeans or slacks (again, NO synthetics), and work shoes. Do not wear any open toe shoes or shorts, as you will be turned away.
If you own safety glasses, bring them. Otherwise, you'll have to use the scratched-up ones which are provided in the workshop.
If you own AWS (shade 8 recommended) eye protection feel free to bring it, otherwise you'll have to use those provided in the workshop.
If you have a pacemaker, the plasma cutter may interfere with it. Please talk to your doctor before signing up for or attending this class.
