Hands On Safety Test (HOST) session
Examiner: Joe Sanders

*Prerequisite - Completion of the Safety Orientation meeting (S&O) is required before taking the HOST.

Description:  Demonstrating safe operation of each tool (Table saw, Miter saw, Planer, Jointer, Band saw, Router, Router Table, Drill press, and our three stationary Sanders).  During the HOST session, you will demonstrate that you can safely use each machine through a series of exercises administered by the examiner.  It is not a test of your woodworking precision, but a test of your safety skills with each tool in our workshop.  Successful completion will result in being issued a Green Card, and the ability to purchase a Shop Time card for your use of the Guild's workshop during an Open Shop period.   

Registration Fee: $60.00
(The $60 fee for this HOST will be fully credited toward your purchase of shop time card, provided you successfully complete the HOST, making the test essentially free.)
