Rope Access industry

Rope Access is 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.

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

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

For companies who work in a specific sector and want to add in-house rope access capability in specific, lower risk, environments, we suggest you consider the ISO training 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.
