Our world class training center provides standardized Rope Access training, and certification sessions in a controlled indoor environment. Students will learn from highly skilled level 3 IRATA technicians, who have logged thousands of hours experience working at height. After 4 days of training an independent assessor will evaluate the candidates skills learned throughout the course. Independent assessments are mandatory for students seeking IRATA certification. These assessments are hosted and facilitated by CRAS on the last day of the course. Course prices include assessment and registration fees for your first assessment. Please note that students who fail their assessment will be presented an opportunity to reattempt the test at a later date, however additional charges will apply. Students who successfully complete the strict assessment process will be IRATA certified.
Only Training Member companies can legitimately offer IRATA rope access training. Additionally it is a requirement that technicians seeking certification have 30 hours of training under an IRATA level 3 before their independent exam by an assessor.
