THE HUMANMADE COMMITMENT

All of Humanmade’s offerings will be created and taught by a combination of experienced onsite staff, industry professionals, and expert volunteers. Humanmade is committed to providing the best maker-based training in the industry, and we will continue to refine our training programs to meet industry standards, while collaborating to design new and interesting training sessions and workshops for our community. 

THREE DISTINCT PATHWAYS

Our wide range of training selections includes three distinct pathways, so it’s easy to understand what you’re looking for. These pathways include Fundamental Safety and Operations sessions (FSOs), Advanced Operation and Skills sessions (AOSs), and our exciting and engaging workshops designed to allow individuals to take a break and come together to collaborate, having fun while honing their creative skills. In addition to providing a foundation for users to develop new skills, Humanmade offers training sessions that build on existing skills and ways to manipulate machines in expert ways. Our AOS sessions can take anywhere from 2-6 hours.

FSO’s

FUNDAMENTAL SAFETY AND OPERATIONS

FUNDAMENTAL SAFETY AND OPERATIONS (FSO’S)

FSO's which are usually between 1-3 hours, will focus on teaching the fundamental basics of an individual machine or area of the shop, including how to safely power a machine on and off, basic safety and operations. Our introductory fundamental training sessions are designed to get individuals checked off and cleared to start safely using the tools the same day. Before a member may reserve time on any machine, they must be checked off on an FSO.
