Test-out can be completed immediately following the orientation or at a later date. After successfully completing your evaluation/test-out, you will then be eligible to purchase the Power Pass. 


Purchase the Power Pass under "Passess and Memberships" on RWC Connect.
It will only be available for purchase after the test-out and the eligibility has been added to your member profile. 


After you have completed the orientation, test-out, and purchased a Power Pass, you may reserve a platform on RWC Connect. Platforms may be reserved up to a week in advance.
