Welcome to Preflight Training

If you need to learn how to use a new tool or brush up on some basics before launching off into a project or starting an Expedition, this is the place to be. The practice sessions are broken down into small chunks so you can pick just the skills and tools you need for your Voyage.
Pre-flight training won’t tell you everything there is to know about a topic. These activities are built to get you using tools and concepts quickly. If you need an electric drill to build a bookshelf, you probably want to know where the power switch is and how attach a bit. You don’t need to know how the drill is put together or the history of drills. That is our philosophy here in Pre-Flight training; we’ll give you what you need to know so you don’t crash on take-off.
