These online safety courses are Part 1 of a 2-part hybrid learning process in order to safely use Open Works' facilities. After completing and passing this online course, you must register for an in-person 1-2 hour Skill Show session on our website and complete the hands-on portion BEFORE you can access our shops as a member.
