We're thrilled to announce that significant advancements have been made at our training center. These upgrades are designed to enhance the quality of IRATA training, offering you streamlined access to the practical elements of the IRATA syllabus.

Recognizing the physical rigors of IRATA training, we are excited to introduce an innovative approach for our trainees.

This resource is especially beneficial for refreshing your memory on IRATA rope access and rigging techniques, which you might have encountered during your last revalidation or upgrade session.

The video series is an invaluable tool for newcomers and beginners, allowing them to familiarize themselves with the syllabus before stepping into their first class. It offers a clearer understanding of how to handle Rope Access equipment, practical tips for training exercises, and strategies to keep pace with the intensive daily training workload. This preparation is crucial for successfully passing the IRATA assessment on the fifth day.
