Online Certifications

The following equipment requires an online pre-certification before attending a one-on-one, hands-on practice session with an experienced STEAM Central staff member:

These can be completed online by selecting the piece of equipment for which you would like to certify from the list above, or by clicking the teal button on the side of the page (labeled "Tutorials" with a camera icon). The online component of each class will provide text, image, and video tutorials on the basics of using the equipment, with short knowledge checks throughout. This is a pre-requisite to the hands-on practice session and can be completed from any device at any time; if you do not have a device available, you may also use a computer at any of our library branches.

If you have been certified for using any piece of equipment in the past, and have not completed a reservation in more than 6 months, please speak to a STEAM Central staff member about being re-certified.
