We mentioned briefly in the last SysNotes that we had selected several members of the Festool Owners Group forum for an exclusive Festool training class. Well, we've decided to offer two additional opportunities for professionals to attend a Festool training class.
Festool End-User Training, Cabinet Construction & Installation, Indianapolis, Nov. 2-3
We are seeking professionals for a 2-day class focused on the onsite construction and installation of cabinets utilizing the Festool System. The class will take place at our headquarters in Lebanon, IN (near Indianapolis) on November 2-3. In this class, we will cover the tools and techniques necessary to build and install shop-quality cabinetry onsite. Though participants will walk away with a range of broadly applicable skills, the class will concentrate primarily on the construction of a 32mm frameless upper cabinet and a traditional face-frame base cabinet. From raw material to finished boxes ready for finish, you will learn how to work faster, easier, and smarter with the Festool System. Visit the Festool Owners Group forum for more detailed information about this training opportunity and how to register to be selected to attend.
Festool End-User Training, Advanced Routers, Las Vegas, Nov. 10-11
We are also seeking professionals for a 2-day class focused on advanced routing techniques utilizing the Festool System. The class will take place at our training facility in Henderson, NV (near Las Vegas) on November 10-11. In this class, we will cover the full Festool router lineup, including the MFK 700, OF 1010, OF 1400, and OF 2200, as well as key system accessories such as the MFS, LR32 Hole boring system, and FS Guide rails. Participants should expect to walk away with a range of broadly applicable skills, with emphasis on panelized doors, circles and arcs, cabinet shelf pins and hinge boring, inlays, fluting, and edge-banding, among others. Visit the Festool Owners Group forum for more detailed information about this training opportunity and how to register to be selected to attend.
There will be no fee to attend either training event, however attendees will be responsible for their own travel expenses. Space is limited and attendees will be selected from a list of applicants.
Since most of the two days will be spent in the shop, actually using the tools, we request that registrants have some previous knowledge of the Festool System, and/or the basics of trim carpentry or cabinet construction. Though we hope to offer future classes tailored for novices, this should be considered an intermediate to expert-level class.
