In addition to our regularly scheduled Tool Trainings, Generator also offers “Advanced Tool Trainings.” These more specialized offerings focus on tools that require more specific knowledge. They all build upon skills that are established in other trainings, and the majority of them have a prerequisite because of this.  Because of these factors, these trainings are only run by request. They include:

  • TIG Welder
  • MIG Welder
  • Oxy-Acetylene Torch
  • CNC Plasma
  • Vertical Mill
  • Machine Lathe
  • Wood Lathe
  • CNC Router
  • 4-Axis CNC

You can learn more about each by clicking within the form below.

Once an Advanced Tool Training has been requested by an individual, Generator staff will contact the appropriate instructor(s) to initiate the scheduling process. Once a date is chosen, the offering will be added to our calendar and others will have an opportunity to register. Please note, this means it will not necessarily be a one-on-one training. Scheduling may take up to 3-4 weeks from the time of the request.

The cost and duration of the trainings varies. Some trainings can be run back-to-back in the same session, but this is only possible for some trainings and is ultimately up to the discretion of the instructor and Generator staff.
