Laser Certification Workshop
July 25 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm$85.00
Laser cutting machines help to create many customized items by using laser technology to etch, engrave, and cut through a wide variety of materials. For example, laser cutters are used to create math manipulatives, puzzles, graphic designs, and more. This beginning course gives participants the knowledge and practice required to safely operate the machine on their own and provides an understanding of the different pieces of hardware and basic design fundamentals through hands-on experience. Participants will clean, calibrate, and configure the machine for different tasks and materials and also learn to troubleshoot common issues that can occur during use. RAFT members who complete the training will be certified to use the machine and can reserve it for individual practice and working on projects. This workshop earns participants 3 training hours that can be applied towards continuing education units (CEUs) issued through San Jose State University.
