The Chaos Academy will teach you everything you’ve ever wanted to know about V-Ray, right from the source.


With our certification programs, we’ve been on a mission to train V-Ray® professionals and mentors, who can spread their knowledge across the world. The Academy’s trainers include some of our top 3D artists, who will show you best practices and provide support on a one-to-one basis.

Interested in joining Chaos® Academy and becoming a V-Ray guru? There are two programs that you can attend, upon a short application process:

For Professionals

The Chaos Academy for Professionals is designed for beginner - or intermediate-level V-Ray users, students and professionals looking to expand their knowledge and develop their skills. The program is a perfect fit for anyone who’s passionate about rendering and wants to boost their career and stand out from the crowd. 

This two-day intensive online training is organized by our partner Trinity Animation, Inc. 

The certification is currently available for V-Ray for 3ds Max and V-Ray for SketchUp.

For V-Ray Mentors

The Chaos Academy for V-Ray Mentors is designed for educators, tutors, professors and high-level professionals who are eager to spread their V-Ray knowledge. V-Ray Mentors go on to become local evangelists, organizing workshops, lectures and courses on how to create photorealistic renders using V-Ray. 

This is a four-day high-level online training that covers both the theoretical and practical aspects of rendering with V-Ray. The certification is currently available for V-Ray for 3ds Max, V-Ray for Maya, V-Ray for SketchUp and V-Ray for Rhino.  

V-Ray Mentors

V-Ray Mentors are our trusted partners in spreading V-Ray knowledge across the world. They are officially certified professionals of the highest rank who organize their own V-Ray workshops, training, courses and curriculum. They can also accredit future V-Ray Certified Professionals at an individual, group or corporate level. 

To inquire about available trainings, courses or workshops, get in direct contact with your selected mentor.
