Simon MacLean, Titan 4 Course, July 2015
TITAN 4 Manipulator Training
Gain basic system operation and routine maintenance procedures of the Titan 4 manipulator
2 day TITAN 4 Manipulator Training: £710 + VAT
For a limited time only, the Scottish Government will pay half the cost of several of our training courses, meaning that you can enhance your ROV skills for half price. Please contact us direct for eligibility criteria and more details.
This two day course familiarises students with all major components of the Titan 4 manipulator. It provides system operation and routine maintenance procedures of this equipment; widely used in the offshore ROV industry. Candidates will have the opportunity to try simulated ROV operations in our onsite simulator as well as learn piloting skills onshore, with a real T4 manipulator arm using our own T4 training pod.
This course has been sanctioned and approved by the industry’s leading manufacturer, FMC Schilling Robotics.
The effective use of the Titan 4 (T4) is as vital as piloting skills; The Underwater Centre can therefore offer both a technical/engineering element to this type of training and an opportunity for personnel to develop those vital operational skills needed.
Price: £710 ex VAT (£852 in VAT)

- Correctly mount and orient the Titan 4 manipulator
- Configure telemetry to RS-485 or RS-232 communications
