Attendees from Pacific Coast Units Learn How to Operate and Maintain ROVs

Members of the United States Coast Guard (USCG) recently completed training on their VideoRay Pro 4 ROVs and Teledyne BlueView imaging sonars. Led by Brett Kolb and Craig Thorngren, the USCG training took place in Alameda, California last month. The 16 trainees came from 4 different USCG units around the Pacific Coast area, including San Francisco, Los Angeles/Long Beach, Honolulu, and Seattle.

The USCG training included a standard Pro 4 basic operator training course with a sonar overview, as well as an additional two days for an advanced maintenance course. 

The USCG took advantage of VideoRay’s onsite training program, which brings a certified VideoRay trainer directly to the operator’s location. This option allows for a more customized and personal training experience, during which operators can learn how to use their ROV in the specific water environment where it will be typically deployed.
