The company employs former Fire Rescue and military operations personnel to deliver a complete training course with certification. The Hydronalix training programs started when EMILY first went into production in 2013. The Los Angeles County Fire Department Marine Division provided a base training platform and assisted with their expertise in training the first several hundred operators. The Domestic Preparedness Support Initiative (DPSI) along with Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR), and the University of Texas Engineering Extension Service (TEEX), funded and supported the development of this comprehensive training program.
Hydronalix training programs use graphic media, hands on experience, with formal written testing and certification. Online training is also available.
