This 90 minute one-on-one appointment with our technical staff will help get you started using the equipment in our Makerspace.

Materials for training will be supplied where relevant (subject to availability,) although some equipment requires removable storage devices like a USB stick, portable hard drive, etc, to save your work.

Note that in Vernon, currently only two pieces of equipment require certification before use:
  • 3D Printer
  • Cricut Maker
The rest of the makerspace equipment (including the soundbooth,) can be used without certification, after a brief orientation the first time you use them, although you *can* book this time to get extra help using any of our equipment.

Please note that if you're looking for help with the soundbooth, you need to make an additional reservation alongside this one- please see https://orl.evanced.info/spaces/Patron/Results to reserve the soundbooth for the same time.
