VideoRay Certified Instructors provide invaluable expertise and guidance for new VideoRay users learning how to get the most out of their ROV. Our trainers have traveled across the globe to conduct operator training courses and assist with various missions using VideoRay. Rather than simply providing the same generic "how-to" overview to every user, VideoRay Certified Trainers draw on their diverse backgrounds in law enforcement, military, offshore oil & gas, and inspection services to provide individual users with the piloting and maintenance training specific to their operational environment. 

In addition to VideoRay training courses, many of our trainers also lead presentations and workshops at VIPS, VideoRay's biennial ROV conference and training symposium.
