Training is required before any NFCF instrument may be used. Training is done by staff or volunteers and is arranged to fit their schedules. Training is done on a first-come first-serve basis, and is dependent on the status of the machine. There may be waiting lists, so you are advised to consult the FOM web site and sign up early.  The amount of training time is contingent on the level of difficulty for each instrument; additional training sessions may be required for special procedures depending on access granted to the user.

Existing users may not train new users on any piece of equipment in the NFCF area.
