Class Awareness:

There are no academic requirements to meet before registering for any of these courses, but there will be considerable use of power tools and other shop related equipment so a basic understanding will be helpful.

* If you don't see a time that works for your schedule, and you have at least three people, contact the instructor and we can schedule it.
