2 day TITAN 4 Manipulator Training: £710 + VAT

Course Funding

Until 30th June 2018, 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.

Eligible Scottish residents¹ will receive 50% course funding so you’ll only pay £426 inc VAT

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)
