This class, in addition to Green Orientation (GO), is required in order to use the table saw without supervision.

Learn how to use the NoVA Labs SawStop table saw. In this rowdy 2 hr class you will learn to employ the table saw for the most frequently needed operations: precision cross-cutting and ripping. You'll also learn the true meaning of the phrases "finger-tight", and "about right". You'll learn about "kickback" and how to avoid it.

Class is required for everyone, regardless of experience level. Sufficiently motivated students who show competence will be signed off immediately at the conclusion of class.
