ABOUT IRATA TRAINING WITH RIG SYSTEMS

The Level 1 programme covers the following:
- Pre-visual and tactile personal equipment checks
- Basic rope access and fall arrest drills
- Rigging and hauling techniques
- Rescue protocols
- Application of height related health and safety legislation
Level 2 and 3 programmes include more advanced rigging and rescue techniques coupled with risk assessments, equipment inspection and method statements. For more information concerning the content of courses refer to the specific course page.
Assessment is undertaken on Day 5 by a qualified and independent IRATA Assessor.
Re-qualification criteria has recently changed, so please contact RIG Systems for clarification if your current IRATA qualification has or is about to lapse.
IRATA have recently revised their Direct Entry Guidelines which are the procedures for experienced unqualified roped access technicians to bypass sections of the training syllabus. There are now only very few circumstances when Direct Entry is permitted. For more information please call RIG or review the IRATA website www.irata.org.
The course will be delivered at our training centre near Okehampton, Devon. However, we are able to deliver courses at a number of alternative venues, if you have a number of delegates and would like to book a closed course.
