The use of rope access is now commonplace around the world, on land and offshore; in cities and on coastal cliffs; on ancient buildings and those of modern design. Rope access is the preferred method for many working at height, or in areas of confined or difficult access.
Long before the work at height sector came to truly appreciate the significance of formal training, IRATA was devising a training regime that today not only delivers high quality rope access technicians working to a safety creed and a proven syllabus, but enables its work force to follow a progressive route of personal development that can culminate in expertise that includes management and supervisory skills, high grade safety and rescue capabilities
All IRATA technicians are trained by those who have extensive work and instruction experience. Technicians can qualify in three grades but do not progress to higher grade until they have accumulated a set number of hours of experience on ropes. All IRATA technicians have to revalidate their certification every three years, so even the most expert cannot allow their standards to drop. Every IRATA training course is completed with an assessment by an independent IRATA Assessor.
Course available on our Kee Safety Training Centre located in Calgary - AB.
Ropes have been used for a myriad of purposes for many thousands of years. From the construction of the pyramids to sailing boats, ropes have helped us build extraordinary structures and go about basic maintenance tasks for as long as we can remember. Humans have been using ropes for ascending and descending for a very lengthy time but as buildings grew taller and taller, the necessity for a safe system of rope access became increasingly important.
