This IRATA course introduces the various principles of working at height, the safe systems of work, safety equipment to be utilised and provides an introduction to working at heights legislation.
Once you have an understanding of the equipment used for rope access, we’ll get you ‘on the ropes’ and our highly experienced IRATA member instructors will take you through the basic principles of rope access. The practical element of the rope access course will focus on ascending, descending, transferring from rope to rope, rebelays, deviations and aid climbing.

Additional Training 
Refresher Training, Revalidation & VOC programs are available.
Due to the aptitude and the mental conditioning that is required for exposure to height, rope access technicians who have not been engaged in rope access work for 6 months or more are required to attend a suitable refresher course before being allowed to work. For Level 1 rope access technicians, the refresher course will include all techniques covered in the initial rope access course. Levels 2 and 3 will concentrate on rigging and rescue procedures. The length of the rope access training course will be dependent upon assessment by our trainer.
All assessments are carried out by an independent IRATA assessor.
