Train with the leading rope access service in the industry
Specialist Height Access applies IRATA international standards to produce well-trained and skilled rope technicians. We put you under the supervision of highly experienced and well respected trainers to ensure that you receive the best training in the industry.
Our new state of the art training facility, based in Banksmeadow, is set up to recreate real-life rope access scenarios and give you the ultimate hands on experience. You will learn how to ascend and descend the ropes using the appropriate equipment, you will learn safe rigging practices and perform rescue techniques using rescue dummies and live casualties.
Our rope access IRATA training courses will consist of both theory and practical modules to provide you with a thorough understanding of what is required to safely and effectively work on ropes in a number of different trades. Whether it be a beginner’s course you were after or you are interested in a recertification or upgrading your qualifications in the industry, we have the course to suit you.
Our courses are $1650 per person and take one week to complete. Courses run from 8am-4pm each day over the allocated period.
Realising the complexity of the course, we offer you a second chance. We allow you to come back and re-attempt the final test for free if you happen to fail.
Training will take place from Monday through to Thursday, with all tests and assessments on Friday.
