IRATA Training Safety above all

We offer an officially recognised training course with training facilities for practical experience

IRATA is an organization with a proven safe working method for all work at height. Height Specialists is a proud member of IRATA and has been an IRATA certified training centre for over 10 years. In our training center in Bergschenhoek we offer training for IRATA level 1, 2 and 3. Partly due to the atmosphere within the organization and the quality of our trainers, the success rate is well above 95%.


Every month we offer IRATA training courses. 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.

  • Our success rate is over 95%
  • An IRATA certificate is valid for 3 years
  • Worldwide recognition for levels 1, 2 and 3

The dates of IRATA courses provided at Height Specialists are negotiable to suit potential candidates, please look at customized training.
