This is a repeating informational nonevent.

THIS IS NOT A POSTING FOR A IPCS
The instructions on how to proceed with the online portion of certification are in this document.
FYI, IPCS's are scheduled based on the number of people on the woodshop class queue. Please go through the process to get In the class queue for the class you want and then feel free to post in the woodshop channel of Slack or DM me if you don't think one is being scheduled quickly enough.
Depending on what you want to do in the woodshop you will need to complete the different classes listed below. Everyone that uses the woodshop will need to take the Woodshop Safety and Policies Class(S&P) annually. This is a free class and goes over basic usage policies and safety in the shop. There is no physical component to the class, simply watch the video and take the quiz. The other classes will all have a hands-on session with an instructor to verify your understanding of the tools' use and safety. After you watch the videos and complete the quiz you will be placed in the class queue for the in-person certification session (IPCS). There is a separate queue for each class. Instructors will post available session dates and times and cut off dates in the Slack woodshop channel, Meetup, and email. The person highest on the class queue that responds by the cutoff time will get in that session.
The tools are broken into the following classes.
