Every month we offer IRATA training courses. With the use of rope techniques (rope access), you learn how to work at height safely. A course lasts from Monday to Friday. During this week you will gain theoretical knowledge and often practice in the ropes. Exercise, practice, practice: you learn what to do in common situations. In our training room are all necessary materials, as well as a diversity of installations that you might encounter in practice.
On Friday you will end the training with an exam: an independent (external) examiner will assess your progress.
The dates of IRATA courses provided at Height Specialists are negotiable to suit potential candidates, please look at customized training.
