How to EASILY Transition from the Pro3 to Pro4 ROV
Craig Thorngren, Principal, Submerged Recovery & Inspection Services, LLC

After training 15 agencies and more than 120 people in the last two years in the Pro4 and its accessories, Chief Craig Thorngren, USCG (ret) has seen just about everything there is to be seen with the system. As a trusted member of VideoRay’s Beta Test Program he has helped shape not only how the system operates, but how to teach those that have to “rethink” how they operate their new ROV. The Pro4 is not only leaps and bounds ahead of the Pro3 technologically speaking, but it really is a completely different tool altogether. Most people who transition from an earlier model only use the most basic functions and don’t use the system to its full potential (most of the pilots are men, and let’s face it, men don’t read instruction manuals). As VideoRay's Senior ROV Instructor Craig will outline what works well (and what doesn’t) in helping current Pro3 ROV Pilots make an easy transition to becoming a Pro4 ROV Pilot. It will also enlighten supervisors in what they can do to help their personnel make the transistion in a timely fashion.
