This course includes theory and practical training. A big focus is on climbing safely while minimizing big falls (fall factors). We will cover how to perform in-depth pre-job planning so that you understand all the hazards and risks involved, and learn how to mitigate them beforehand. Students will walk away from the course with added tips on how to improve their climbing and rescue skills.
These skills help encompass a safer way to work at height that meets regulation.

The training at Pacific Ropes is exceptional. I can't recommend them enough. Every time I train here I learn so much. The equipment that the pupil can use is the latest and best on the market. They always have new devices which you can learn to use and then add to your arsenal of devices in the field. The training centre itself has enough space to set up any scenario you can imagine. All in all a great experience as ever.

PacRopes L1 Student
Have had a great week so far, all training has been completed and all that is left is practice and the test. I feel very competent completing the level 1 training tasks and look forward to finishing my level one. Want to say a big thanks to Aaron for being very professional and helpful when needed. Will be back for level 2
PacRopes L1 Student
Great teachers full of patience and knowledge. Leveling up requires a lot of new skills and maneuvers, Aaron broke everything down really well and simplified everything perfectly. His knowledge is plentiful. My course was a small group which was awesome to cover things quickly with more time for practice.
