About IRATA Rope Access

Rope access is regarded as the safest and most dynamic method of working at heights. The safe system of work utilises ropes and associated equipment to gain access to and from the work position, and be supported there. Rope technicians are employed on a wide variety of projects across different sectors and can be seen cleaning windows on high-rise buildings, painting and blasting on oil & gas rigs, or inspecting piping and vessels in refineries and industrial plants. Its broad application can be applied to a number of trades and tasks with the benefits for businesses being; an unrivalled safety record, quick set-up and dismantling times, no invasive equipment, and an environmentally friendly means of access.

Rope access work is physically demanding and technicians require a high level of competency to ensure safe and efficient use. Rope access IRATA training courses are physically intensive and mentally challenging with an emphasis on the practical skills that will be required on site. Candidates on the course will required to ascend and descend the ropes multiple times a day using associated equipment to progress through manoeuvres, learn safe rigging practices and perform rescue techniques using rescue dummies and live casualties. The course has an element of theoretical classroom work with most of the training and assessment being focused on practical and physical elements. A reasonable level of fitness is required to attend the course. Males and females of all shapes and sizes have successfully passed the course and are active in the industry with successful careers, however, it is essential to understand that rope access is a very physically demanding and is not for everyone.

Feedback on our IRATA rope access courses is excellent, with many candidates saying it’s the best course they have done. If this is the industry you are seeking to pursue, we are looking forward to training you in the most dynamic and exciting jobs on Earth.
