Become a V-Ray Mentor at the next Chaos Group Academy in Sofia, Bulgaria, this May 13 — 15, 2019.


Chaos Group Academy is your chance to become an official V-Ray Mentor. Over three days, you'll take part in an intense program with one of our top 3D artists — and learn everything you've ever wanted to know about V-Ray. The first day will be focused on what you should know about V-Ray. The second day will be focused on how to use V-Ray properly and effectively. The third day will be focused on presentation skills and knowledge sharing.

Once you’ve successfully completed the program, you'll become an officially certified V-Ray Mentor. With this status, you’ll be able to organize and promote your very own V-Ray courses and curriculum, as well as accredit future V-Ray Certified Professionals.


How to apply


The Chaos Group Academy will teach you everything you need to know about V-Ray. We’ll show you best practices and help resolve any issues you have with the software on a one-on-one basis.

What you'll get out of the Chaos Group Academy experience:

  • A free, two-year academic license of V-Ray for 3ds Max including full support and regular software updates.
  • Promotion of your contact details and the courses you offer in a dedicated section of the V-Ray Academy webpage.
  • The opportunity to organize V-Ray Certified Professional sessions and exams — we’ll provide the exam content via a dedicated certification platform, and successful candidates will be listed on the V-Ray Certified Professional page.
  • Free certificates of attendance for your future V-Ray course participants.
  • Speaking opportunities at Chaos Group at various events around the world.
  • Plus, you’ll get the full support of Chaos Group’s Education team for the validity period of your certification*.

At the end of your Chaos Group Academy training, you'll be able to recreate the scenes in the video below.

*V-Ray Мentor Certification is valid for two years. To ensure you’re always up to date with the latest V-Ray features, you’ll need to renew your certificate at the end of this period.
