Certification to Reserve Equipment
We now use the online software:
Reftab.com as our equipment-reserve provider.
With Reftab, students can learn how to reserve and sign out the latest state-of-the-art equipment for a truly hands-on experience. Equipment can be reserved for 108 hours, weekends included.
In order to check out equipment,
both online and in-person,
students must get certified.
Follow the steps below:
- Students are required to preview the Camera Certification videos below in advance to familiarize themselves with the certification procedures.
- Students will have to pass the written certification test in order to perform the hands-on camera certification in-front of one of our CNM Staff.
- Once students are certified to use the equipment, they need to register for a new account by using their school commnet e-mail (eg: firstname.lastname@example.org) and cellphone # and going to the following link: https://www.reftab.com/login.
