Training & Workshops

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

Our Courses typically include two parts for most equipment:

  1. Online Safety & Basic Use course on Canvas
  2. 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.

* Includes machining time

Access Equipment


  • Access to the equipment will be granted via your Rutgers ID card.
  • Access is provided on an individual basis.
  • Safety and basic use training is required. Experienced users may have training requirements waived.

Rutgers ID Cards


If your ID card was issued prior to March 2018, you will need to obtain a new ID card to manage your training completion at the Makerspace.
