Attend V-Ray Academy and become a V-Ray Mentor


Stay tuned for dates of our next V-Ray Academy session. Sign up for email notifications below.


V-Ray Academy is your chance to become an official V-Ray Mentor. Over two 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. 

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.




The V-Ray 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 V-Ray Academy experience:

  • The chance to be one of the very first V-Ray Mentors.
  • 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.

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


The V-Ray Academy course is designed for people with a solid working knowledge of 3ds Max and V-Ray for 3ds Max.

Fluency in English is required.

Certification as a V-Ray Мentor 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.
