In order to keep Generator safe, we require members to be certified by a Generator instructor to use our tools and machinery.

Typically, members get certified by taking one of Generator’s Tool Trainings.

Generator’s Experienced User Assessments (EUAs) allow Generator members with extensive experience to bypass our tool trainings and instead participate in a one-on-one in-person assessments with one of Generator’s instructors.

Generator instructors will test members’ skills and knowledge and provide additional Generator-specific safety policies and protocols. EUAs also go over how to use a “shared” tool– particularly how to care for tools and community safety at Generator.

All EUAs are $85, pass or fail (but not all tools have an EUA option).

To inquire about setting up an EUA use the link below to submit an application. We look forward to getting you certified and using our tools soon!
