Workshops & Training

The CEID currently provides training and workshops for much of the equipment and technology available to CEID members. There are three categories of skill acquisition exercises at the CEID:

  • Special Workshops – These workshops are often held as part of the CEID Wednesday Night Event Series and teach a large group of individuals an advanced skill (e.g. arduino programming, knitting, etc.). These workshops are typically sporadic and are announced by email.
  • Recurring Workshops – Recurring workshops provide CEID members with a basic skillset to work with (e.g. hand tools, power tools, etc.). These workshops are scheduled weekly and sign-ups can be found on Classes*v2.
  • Recurring Trainings - Recurring trainings are intended to provide CEID members access to a specific piece or pieces of equipment in the CEID. These workshops are scheduled weekly and sign-ups can be found on Classes*v2.
