IRATA Course – 30th August to the 3rd of September
Whether you are in industry, or looking to kick start a new career at height, IRATA Industrial Rope Access Training is internationally recognised and it the industry benchmark for Industrial Rope Access qualifications.
Each of our courses are open to all Level’s of Training: IRATA Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3.
IRATA International has long been considered the world’s leading authority in Industrial Rope Access. The Association, from its inception in the early 1980’s had the primary objective for ongoing development of a safe system of work, allowing personnel to gain access to and from the work position, and be supported there.
Rope Access as a qualification can provide work opportunities in many industry sectors, such as civil construction, oil and gas, power and petrochemical, the natural environment such as geotechnical and mining, confined spaces, ground support engineering, renewable energy and more.
IRATA International Training
Our courses are run out of our state of the art training facility in Sydney – Marrickville, New South Wales. The only facility of it’s kind in the state, this purpose built training centre offers students the very best equipment, training structures, exposure to real world working environments at the highest standard of course content being delivered by qualified IRATA International Instructors who continue to work in-industry, offering real-time and relevant guidance in the development of rope access operational skills.
The Right Attitude: In order to ensure a safe work environment, candidates must have an appropriate attitude alongside fitness and physical capabilities. An appraisal can be arranged with Dynamic Access if you are unsure. Rope access work is often remote and far from outside help, meaning a respect for heights and responsible behaviour is required to prevent any incidents. Dynamic Access have the right to exclude any candidate from training if they have concerns over their fitness or attitude. Candidates also need to be at least 18 years of age.
Medical: Candidates need to be physically fit and unaffected by any disability/medical condition which prevents them from working safely, and are required to certify that they do not have any medical disabilities, by a self-certification (completed on your first day of training). It is recommended that any condition has a medical certificate or doctors note to show potential employers that it won’t affect their work at height. Any long term condition should be re-assessed medically to ensure appropriate medical condition.
Theory: Candidates applying for a re-register or upgrade course should be competent in all practical as well as theoretical requirements for their current level, and should be capable of performing all techniques and answering questions at that level. Those deemed not competent to their existing level may require additional training.
Work Experience: Candidates looking to take an upgrade need to ensure that their certificate is valid on the day of assessment and that they also have at least one years’ experience alongside 1000 working hours signed off correctly in their IRATA LogBook. Lost LogBooks can be replaced here. Technicians should present their logbook to the TMC at the beginning of the course for re-validations or upgrades.
