Do you want to work as a professional industrial climber? Then follow an IRATA training to become a Rope Access Technician. IRATA has three training levels. Regardless of your prior knowledge and experience, you always start at Level 1. Unfortunately, direct entry is not possible.
Basic training in which all aspects of working safely with industrial rope techniques are discussed. An operator level 1 always works under the supervision of a responsible level 3 (supervisor).
- Accessible to everyone
- No experience required
All courses consist of 4 days of intensive training, where 100% presence and commitment is required. After 4 days of training, there is an exam, administered by an accredited, independent IRATA examiner. The exam usually takes a whole day. Each exam includes an oral, theoretical and practical part.
Certification and Recognition
Successful candidates receive an IRATA certificate for the relevant Level, an ID card and, during the first training, also a logbook. Each certificate is valid for 3 years. For more information regarding (re)certification: read the blog.
