Classes vs. Trainings:¬†Generator’s trainings are intended to provide basic instruction on a specific tool or machine at Generator so that people may safely and efficiently operate them. Generator’s classes are generally project-based, offer more hand-on working time, and result in a finished product. In short, we recommend taking a training to learn basic operation of a tool or machine, and we recommend taking a class to become experienced and proficient with a tool or machine.

Neither our classes nor trainings are associated with any professional or industry-level certification status, nor is any document issued upon completion.
