Safety trainings are started by watching videos containing important information regarding usage of the Idea Shop. In total there are 4 videos to watch: General Info, Assembly Area, Knife safety, and 3D Printers.

In-Person Training

Following completion of the video portion of the safety trainings, there will be an in person portion to go over the machinery.

After both portions of the safety training, users are now eligible to take the final quiz. This quiz is based off of the content learned during the safety training. Successful completion of the quiz grants the user access to the Idea Shop during hours of operation.

Completed Trainings

Users can also find a list of all completed trainings, and re-watch videos at any time from the training interface page.


The in-person safety training time I wanted is no longer available. What should I do?

Individuals should sign up on our website to secure a spot, however walk-ins will be accepted during scheduled times assuming there is sufficient space. **Note that there are usually at least one (1) no-show to each safety training, especially in the mornings. If you have not already watched the required videos for a training you will not be able to get credit for attending the correlating in-person training.

Individual students unable to attend any scheduled safety trainings should contact Idea Shop staff via email ideashop[at]iit[dot]edu.

What happens if I show up late?

Due to the nature of the trainings, users who arrive more than five (5) minutes late to a safety training will miss hands on tool use / content. Therefore if you arrive more than five (5) minutes late you will need to sign up for a new time slot.

Why do I get a Google 403 error when trying to log into the safety training site?

Google OAuth login for our site is restricted to Illinois Tech Google accounts only.

If you receive this error repeatedly and Google does not allow you to choose an account to log in with, either:

  • Log in using an incognito window.
  • Log out of all google accounts and return to the site login page.

If you continue to encounter errors please reach out to our staff for assistance.

Currently users from Institute of Design and Kent Law are unable to log in using Google OAuth. We are hoping to have an alternative login option in place by mid September 2021.
