We will be using this document to develop an orientation for new co-op members (meaning people who have just completed the classes and are ready to take advantage of their member benefits).

2009.02 current offer clinics on Mon and Wed for personal time, will formalize that with "bike build" nights or schedule clinics for class fee as instructor time is available.

This following idea is on hold: 11/08 plan is for class grads to have 1 month to do beginner tasks to earn personal shop time (or get time with classes that can be "unlocked" by doing apprentice nights or tasks) or some such to ensure that grads have practiced maintenance tasks before starting on own work.

Advanced (repair) students will have to take apprentice night clinics in addition to do more than maintenance (tune up) personal work.

Tool use including stands and supplies needs to go here — see JJD notes below

Project shed policies too.

Also mention Retail training task JS 2209 02 13
