Our equipment offerings are vast and varied. We have simple gear for simple projects, and professional gear for true (and aspiring) professionals.
For the safety of our advanced equipment, some items require that you receive in-person training before you can reserve it or check it out. Previously, the below items did not require any training.
Will users be able to make a reservation for equipment that they are not trained for? You will only be able to reserve restricted equipment after completing a short training. Consultations can be scheduled 3 days in advance. Please plan ahead, and contact us if you have any questions.
What about returning users who have used the equipment before? You will need to take the training even if you have used restricted equipment in the past. However, if you wish to forego the training because you are confident in your experience with the equipment, you may speak to a supervisor about becoming an authorized user. To speak to a supervisor, please come to the front desk during normal hours or give us a call at 202-687-7410. The supervisor will ask you a couple of questions about your experience.
