IRATA CERTIFIED TECHNICIAN
Rope access or industrial climbing is a form of work positioning, initially developed from techniques used in climbing and caving, which applies practical ropework to allow workers to access difficult-to-reach locations without the use of scaffolding, cradles or an aerial work platform.
IRATA certified qualifications are recognised globally. Technicians are dependent on both technical skills, theoretical knowledge, and workplace experience. As such, they provide prescribed levels of ability for technicians to achieve giving the level 3 is the highest level on site.
There are some situations where, to reach your work position, you may need to do some climbing. Vertical aid climbing is a more advanced technique, and could be used to climb a steel lattice tower, a series of bolt anchors in a wall, etc.
