May 2016 has seen over 30 people train in electronics fabrication and mechanical fabrication using state-of-the-art equipment available at Gearbox. This enabled projects to begin with confidence that the equipment user, other users and the equipment itself are safe.
I don't know why I would hang out anywhere else yet I learn something new here every day. - Chris Nguyai, Biotech Entrepreneur
Gearbox is happy to share a new training calendar for the month of June 2016, now including Mechanical Computer Aided Design courses.
- Orientation is free of charge for members, and is required for all new members BEFORE they can use any equipment at Gearbox.
- Safety and Basic Use (SBU) courses are required for many (not all) machines before you can use them at Gearbox. Members pay only a small lab fee of 500 KSh per course to cover the cost of materials.
- SBUs will cost 3000 KSh per course for non-members.
To register for any course, please call 0790.406.265 during business hours (Mon - Fri, 10:00 - 18:00 hrs). Payment is due at the time of registering via Mpesa. All SBUs are limited to a maximum of 5 people per course, so that everyone has plenty of time to use the equipment.
