ISD Prep Classes

Classes to prepare you to qualify for Level 1 Woodworker certification, and access to Individual Skill Development

If you are an experienced woodworker and already know how to use most power tools safely and efficiently, you may sign up for only the Woodworking Safety I class and take the certification exam. However, if you do not feel that you are skilled in the use of power tools, you will need to sign up for one or more of our Power Tool Proficiency classes. The classes described below will be scheduled several times per year.


  • Power Tool Proficiency – Sawing: (6 hours) The objective of this class it to demonstrate the efficient and safe operation of the table saw, band saw, and miter saw and to provide students with an opportunity to use and become comfortable with these machines.
  • Power Tool Proficiency – Stock Preparation: (3 hours) This class will cover the safe and efficient use of the jointer, thickness planer, and sanders for preparing wood for use in woodworking projects.
  • Power Tool Proficiency – Routing: (3 hours) This class is an introduction to one of the most useful and versatile machines in the workshop. When using the router either hand-held or mounted in a table there are rules to follow to achieve desired results and to keep one safe.
  • Power Tool Proficiency – Drilling and Mortising: (3 hours) This class will cover the safety techniques and skills needed for properly and safely using the drill press, mortiser, hand drill, Kreg Jig, and dowel jig.
  • Using Power Tools for Woodworking: (15 hours) If you feel you could benefit from all of the above classes, a less expensive way to learn all of these areas is by taking this Parkland College sponsored class. (Click here or details)


Participation in these classes should give you the experience and skill that you need to easily complete the Woodworking Safety I class, and the Level 1 Woodworker certification exam.
