IRATA ALL LEVELS

 
 

IRATA stands for International Rope Access Trade Association.

IRATA rope access certifications are accepted internationally. Often required by multinational oil companies as the only Rope Access certification they recognize, IRATA's strengths include in-depth code of practices, highly structured training,and strong integration with many health and safety regulators around the world. Advancement between levels requires at least 1 year and 1000 hours of verifiable, logged rope access experience.

 

IRATA LEVEL 1

5 days of training
8am – 4pm

1 day assessment
8am – 4pm

The IRATA Level 1 certificate is the first step in a three level structure. Candidates should expect a hard week both mentally and physically as they come to grips with the wide range of access techniques required to pass the independent assessment on the final day. As a qualified Level 1, the candidate will always be under the safety supervision of a Level 3

IRATA LEVEL 2

5 days of training
8am – 4pm

1 day assessment
8am – 4pm

The IRATA Level 2 certificate is the second step in the IRATA certification scheme. The Level 2 builds on the Level 1 course material and the candidate's practical experience. More in depth rigging and rescue techniques as well as a higher degree of proficiency on the ropes consolidate the candidate's experience and offer an introduction to the advanced techniques of Level 3.

IRATA LEVEL 3

Thus far IRATA rope access has an impeccable safety record, this is largely due to the quality of Level 3's in the field. This course aims to maintain, and build on, these high standards.

SPRAT stands for Society of Professional Rope Access Technicians.

SPRAT is a (mostly) North-American certification and accepted everywhere else other than Oil+Gas, particularly common in commercial maintenance and the wind energy industry.
