After filling out the Membership Agreement form, you should automatically receive an email with follow-up instructions. This self-guided online orientation will teach you how to navigate our facilities, connect with our community and access our resources. It should take about 20 minutes to complete the self-paced modules.
In order to access our shops and equipment, you’ll need to be certified by NextFab staff for safe use. Classes are the best way to learn how to use a tool/machine safely and gain certifications for use in our shops. Private Training or certification check sessions are the best way to receive one-on-one training to guide you through learning a new skill, problem-solve your project, or certify you on the equipment you have pre-existing knowledge of.
