The Maker Ninjas (student workers) and faculty members responsible for the operation of the MakerSpace are listed under People, and users with special requests are encouraged to contact them.

Preventing injury to people (and equipment) is our first priority. To do this, users must demonstrate knowledge and competence. Users can earn a "badge" that certifies their competence. The various badges, and the equipment authorized by that badge, can be found here: PPE
Along with the badge, the user's RFID card will be recognized to turn on power to equipment. For example, a user who's completed the requirements for the Metal-1 badge will be allowed to use the drill press, vertical band saw, and many of the portable tools.
On-line training materials are under development and will be available through the MyTulane/Blackboard system. All users must go through the required training procedure in order to earn a badge that conveys access to the restricted machine tools.
