PROTOTYPES & PROFESSIONALS AVAILABLE to YOU
We are here to help you with your project(s). Vocademy offers Hire-A-Pro (HAP) services for our members, students, industry, inventors and anyone needing help with a product, project or idea. We offer consultation, design, and prototyping services in many different fields from machining, Computer Aided Design (CAD), 3D printing, textiles, plastics and composites, and much more. In some cases, we can also facilitate production with our local industry connections. We also offer private classes in all of our subjects. Hire-A-Pro services are not for production. Vocademy is a makerspace, and as such, is primarily setup to teach skills. Then our members can use these new skills, in our facility, for prototyping or any other projects. We are not a job shop, nor do we rent out our equipment. But we can do limited runs of prototypes or one-off designs as part of our Hire-A-Pro services. These services are available to everyone.
FREE HIRE-A-PRO CONSULTATION – DIT TUESDAYS
Every Tuesday from 6pm to 9pm, members and non-members can join us for DIT (Do It Together) Tuesdays! It’s all about meeting new people, brainstorming, group projects and seeing what Vocademy has to offer… It’s all about collaboration. During this time, we welcome anyone to come and discuss your ideas with our staff and the community. There’s no charge and we would be happy to spend a few minutes with you. We can determine if we can help with your idea, design or project and if a paid consultation is your next step. This is a public event, so there is no guarantee of privacy for any discussion(s). In many cases, our community of makers offers to help too!
PAID HAP CONSULTATION – BY APPOINTMENT
The first consultation is a 1 hour ($40) meeting where we will discuss the project, the current status, if and how we can help, and next steps. The initial consultation is non-refundable in case it is determined that we cannot facilitate the job requirements. If it is something Vocademy can do for you, the next step is an estimated cost. Depending on the specifics of the HAP job, the costs for work are: $60 per hour for hands-on time (CAD, machining, etc) and $25 per hour for hands-off time (laser engraving, 3D printing). These rates can vary depending on the task, quantities, how much setup is required, finishing, etc. These estimates are not invoices and we cannot guarantee the exact total, as there are always unforeseen circumstances in the world of making things. We keep our clients informed every step of the way.
HIRE-A-PRO FOR PRIVATE CLASSES OR TUTORING
We offer private training for groups, companies or one-on-one training. Depending on the client, special considerations can be made as far as hours, starting times, and group pricing. We offer all of our classes and subjects as part of private training. We can also discuss corporate plans for membership for employees to come and play at Vocademy after work, on weekends, holidays, and so on. If you are interested in any of the above programs, please email us: info@Vocademy.com or call us: 951-266-6630
