IRATA Refresher Rope Access Training


Vertical Access provide Refresher Courses for those IRATA technicians who are in need of renewing their certification.

A refresher course is needed if no rope work has been done for 6 months or more.  (Please note if revalidating a ticket a full 5 day course will need to be completed).  To ensure technicians are up to date with certification, re-assessment may be done up to 6 months before expiry date without time penalty.

The refresher course lasts a minimum of 3 days depending on the individuals rope access experience.

Our trainers are chosen for their on site experience as well their ability to teach therefore you will benefit directly from their experience. All Vertical Access courses are designed with a practical bias to train you to be able to work safely and efficiently within the rope access industry.

If used with other qualifications, such as trade certificates, then the potential for work will be enhanced, giving operatives the opportunity to prove themselves in this challenging industry.

The training venue utilises structural steelwork up to 15 metres high which resembles many industrial locations to ensure that training prepares you for the work that you will encounter. The venue is indoor and so is not weather dependent with the following facilities on site:

  • Cafeteria
  • Showers
  • Changing facilities


All personal protective equipment will be provided.


We also offer IRATA Level 1, IRATA Level 2 and IRATA Level 3 courses.
