Information for new JWNC users

If you wish to use the JWNC, these are the initial steps that you need to take. Please note that you (or your supervisor) must have obtained funding first; a good place to begin that process is here.

You will need to attend a new user induction session, and these are held on the second Tuesday of every month at 11am. We meet outside the JWNC, at the main entrance on Engineering Way.

The induction session is for people who:

(a) have not registered with the JWNC at all; or

(b) have partially gone through the induction process.

The steps you need to take are as follows:

1. Log onto the JWNC website as guest (see login details below) and register;
2. Read the safety material;
3. Complete the Moodle safety quiz. The registration key is jwnc1234;
4. Attend a JWNC safety tour, which takes place at an induction session;
5. Finalise the process: have your username activated on the web site, obtain access card authorisation and sign COSHH form.

Steps 2 & 3 take some time, and to make the most of the induction session you should complete these steps on your own beforehand. To view the safety information and obtain details of how to take the Moodle test, log on here from within the university, using username guest and password apollo11. The following link gives detailed description of the induction process, and links to the safety information.

Please take time to go through the safety material and complete the Moodle quiz before the session as this will speed up the induction process. If you have not done so you can still turn up and we will help you get started with the induction process, but you will not be able to complete your induction that day.

Please email eng-jwnc-staff@glasgow.ac.uk beforehand if you wish to attend the induction session. This is to give us an idea of numbers.
