Training & Workshops

Training at the Makerspace is provided to assist in getting you up and running on our machine resources. Basic usage and satefy are covered in these courses.

Our Courses typically include two parts for most equipment:

  • Online Safety & Basic Use course on Canvas
  • In-person assessment with a Makerspace staff member 


Once the in-person assessment is complete, you will be provided access by Makerspace staff through your Rutgers ID card.
