ShopBot Training

At ShopBot, we believe that training is valuable for getting the most from your CNC, whether you’re brand new to CNC or an experienced user. We have partnered with the North Carolina Furniture School to offer a series of live training workshops, some for those just getting started, others for people looking for some more specialized options.
