In order for students to be able to work in the shops they must take DFN-116 3D Design Techniques. If students pass the course with a C / (2.0) or better they are allowed access to the shops during their tenure at the college.
Academic facilities are not instructional facilities. All faculty are responsible for instructing their students in the use of the tools and techniques in each individual shop that they expect their students to use in the completion of course work and finished projects.
Competency training is mandatory for faculty and staff who wish to use the shops.
