How It Works

Schedule your 1-on-1 session to learn how to use our equipment and get Hacker Lab certified!

Please be aware: due to the nature of the 1-on-1 sessions, we have a 48 hour cut-off for scheduling - you must schedule your session at least 48 hours ahead of the session.  Our normal cancellation policy of 48 hours advanced notice also applies.
