AGITO Academy is our dedicated training program, designed for experienced operators to gain greater confidence and skills with the AGITO Modular Dolly System at high speeds.


AGITO Academy is our dedicated training program, designed for experienced operators to gain greater confidence and skills with the AGITO Modular Dolly System at high speeds. All users must have completed “Standard Operator Mode” training as either a customer or part of the AGITO Academy Program. They are encouraged to have practiced fine control of the AGITO in sports mode and will be required to demonstrate their skill by completing a driving aptitude test at the start of the session. This training is designed to give you the knowledge and confidence to operate the AGITO system in “Advanced Operator Mode”, attendees of AGITO Academy Advanced training will receive a certificate of attendance and unique operator PIN Code.

What is “Advanced Operator Mode”?

After demonstrating comprehensive understanding and driving aptitude of the AGITO in Sports configuration, Advanced Operator Mode training provides attendees a unique operator Pin code that unlocks the firmware to 2500 RPM (26.4mph, 42.4km/h).

Class sizes are limited to ensure students get ample hands-on time with the AGITO.
