** Note: due to Covid-19, this certification will be taught in two parts. The first portion will be taught virtually in our online classroom (you will receive a Zoom link in your email receipt after you register). At the completion of this online portion, you will schedule a one-on-one machine practical with your instructor to complete the hands-on portion of your training physically at the makerspace at a time that works for you. Both parts (virtual and in-person) are included in your purchase of this event.**
