Online Training

All BeAM tool trainings contain an online module that must be completed before moving on to the practice project. Access the Laser Cutter module on the BeAM Sakai site here.

 

Practice Project

After you finish the online module, you must complete a practice project for that tool. Laaser Cutter requires a self-guided practice project, which means that you can work on the project independently at any point during BeAM’s open hours, no need to schedule a time.

See a list of approved BeAM Practice Projects for the Laser Cutter here.
