Basic Skills Training for First-Timers

Anyone who has not been on ASP At Home or ASP before is required to attend a 2.5-hour in person session that will include brief lectures and demonstrations on work site safety. It will also include instruction and supervised individual practice on the safe use of the circular saw, power drill, and hammer. These sessions are held rain or shine in the back parking lot of Jesse Lee Church.

Everyone needs to wear proper work site attire: long pants, a shirt that tucks in (no sleeveless shirts; no low necklines), work boots (no sneakers).  If you have long hair, please tie it back. Participants with improper attire will be sent home.

Everyone needs to bring a 16 oz. claw hammer, a 12′ or longer retractable tape measure, pencil, wonder bar, speed square, a pair of safety glasses and a pair of work gloves.  Please remember to label all your tools.

You will need to register and turn in your Jesse Lee ASP At Home Release & Liability Waiver form prior to participating in Basic Skills.  (Jesse Lee Waiver Form)

Basic skills sessions will be held at Jesse Lee Church and are offered in April.
