Rope Access Training

Paul Bingham, Health & Safety Director for Vertical Access, was formerly Chairman of IRATA and an IRATA Assessor. He is now Chairman of the IRATA Health & Safety Committee and made a significant contribution to the recently published IRATA International Code of Practice.

Our courses are designed to cover all elements of the IRATA training syllabus and current legislation. Our comprehensive training manual is an excellent reference aid whilst training and to working in the industry.

All courses take place at the “Leeds Wall” Climbing Centre where we have our own indoor training facility which has recently undergone renovation. The facility uses structural steelwork which gives an industrial feel and is non-weather dependent.

During the course candidates will be able to try out a range of rope access equipment and are given the opportunity to buy equipment at a discounted price at the end of their training.
