    Online Study Guide

    The Safety Exam is required before access is granted to the Model Shop. Students and faculty must attend a mandatory orientation meeting before they are allowed to take the Safety Exam (a proctored written exam). The Shop Supervisor will sponsor these orientation meetings, which are scheduled after the beginning of each semester with faculty.

    Failure to comply with written safety practices may result in referall to Cal Poly Pomona Judicial Affairs for Disciplinary Action.
