Objectives of the training course:

  • Become aware of the basic security concepts
  • Understand the regulation
  • Assimilate mechanic, electronic and sealing techniques
  • Be able to plan a survey mission with a ROV
  • Be able to pilot the ROV in various conditions (sea water, inland water…)
  • Debrief a mission
  • Condition a ROV after a mission


This training course is aimed at professionals wishing to master ROV piloting for underwater inspection missions. We offer both theoretical instruction over this type of vehicle and a concrete training. This real-working situation training will allow you to acquire fundamental skills while piloting ROVs.

You will thus be able to work autonomously for your future underwater inspection missions.

For practical exercises, you’ll have access to a quarry within which you will explore some wrecks (planes, boats, nozzle outlet, sunken objects…) up to 40m deep, to realize your exercises.
