Rope Access is a quick and easy to install and dismantle and is a practical safe solution which can solve many awkward and troublesome problems of access that could otherwise involve large investment in time and money.

Rope Access is therefore a major saving benefit to many companies and as a result, both the ISO and IRATA qualifications are invaluable for those withing to pursue a career as a freelance rope access technician.

For individuals wishing to pursue work as a freelance rope access technician we recommend the IRATA scheme, which is widely recognised by rope access contracting companies.

For companies who do not presently undertake rope access but wish to develop an in-house capability in specific, lower risk environments, we suggest you consider the ISO qualification. This gives more detailed coverage of training skills in environments similar to the intended work environment e.g. Geotechnical, Specialist net rigging, window cleaning, masts and towers, and wind turbines.

heightec delivers IRATA training in our London Height Safety Centre, and ISO training from our Aberdeen, Kendal, Leeds and London Height Safety Training Centres. Travel and accommodation expenses are kept to a minimum for candidates by choosing a training venue which is most convenient to you.
