SPRAT Training

SPRAT (Society of Professional Rope Access Technicians) is based in America and aims to promote the safe use of Rope Access within our regulatory bodies here in North America. SPRAT training also consists of three levels of certification, which we host every month in BC only. Our methods of teaching aim to lay out the basics as clearly as possible; while inspiring you to problem solve and to be as efficient as possible. Team collaboration is essential for successful Rope Access technicians and we embody that nature within our Rope Access training.

Custom Work At Height Training

We understand that sometimes you need training for a specific work site or structure. Understanding the rescue procedures, protocols, and equipment for a particular job is important and you may not have someone qualified in-house to run this program. Our training team has helped many companies in this scenario with our custom rescue training. These programs can be completed at our facilities or on site.

What is Rope Access

Based on the concept of “doubling up,” Rope Access is a system consisting of ropes and hardware that are attached to a worker in a full body Rope Access harness. Using trained techniques, the worker can utilize this system to go up, down, and around a difficult work location. In addition to this flexibility, a Rope Access Technician can be supported in suspension at their work location all while avoiding any worksite hazards. Below is an illustrative breakdown of the rope access system.
