Tether Termination Course

Proof of Covid 19 Vaccination or negative Covid test result is required to attend VideoRay in-person classes.

Propellers and tethers are the two items on an ROV most prone to wear. Propellers are easy to replace, but tethers require more advanced procedures. The VideoRay Tether Termination Course is designed for technician level personnel to be able to diagnose and repair VideoRay tethers.

  • Do you need factory level knowledge of your VideoRay?
  • Can you field diagnose problems that may occur during operation?
  • Do you need to support an organization's VideoRay fleet?
  • Are you up to date on the latest system technical information and proven techniques?
