This course is designed to take candidates with sufficient industrial rope access experience through all the training and examination requirements to be a qualified IRATA Level 2 Technician over a period of 5 days. Candidates will be required to sign a medical declaration form prior to commencement of training.

Level 1 candidates who wish to upgrade to IRATA Level 2 must have a minimum of 1000 hours logged, covering a variety of work tasks over a minimum period of twelve months since achieving IRATA Level 1 qualification, and their Level 1 qualification must also be current to be able to attend a Level 2 Training Course. A valid, up-to-date IRATA Logbook must also be presented.

IRATA Level 3 Training

This course is designed to take candidates with sufficient industrial rope access experience through all the training and examination requirements to be a qualified IRATA Level 3 rope access technician over a period of 5 days.

IRATA Level 2 candidates wishing to upgrade to the IRATA Level 3 should have a minimum of 1000 hours logged covering a variety of work tasks over a minimum period of twelve months since achieving IRATA Level 2 qualification before being eligible to sit the Level 3 Training Course. Their Level 2 qualification must also be current to upgrade. A valid, up-to-date IRATA Logbook must also be presented.

REVALIDATING YOUR IRATA QUALIFICATION

Part 4.4.4 of the IRATA Training, Assessment and Certification Scheme states that “training programmes shall comprise at least 30 hours training over a minimum of four days.”.

This means that 2 day re-refreshers are no longer available. All re-validations and upgrades through all levels of the IRATA training syllabus must attend a minimum of 4 days of training. A valid, up-to-date IRATA Logbook must also be presented.

The old 2 day’s of training before re-validation were considered to be the bareminimum time needed for a technician to be able to refresh the techniques and skills required of their current level of qualification.

The change to a minimum 4 days of training is to allow technicians to receive more comprehensive and thorough training in an environment where they can explore new techniques, learn about new equipment as well as changes in policies and procedures, in a safe and controlled environment. The minimum of four days is aimed to benefit technicians – to train out bad habits, to practice manoeuvres that they may not have had to undertake during the three years between re-validations, and ultimately – give them the opportunity to become safer industrial rope access technicians.

UPGRADING YOUR IRATA QUALIFICATION 

All technicians wishing to upgrade their existing IRATA qualification must have an current, in-date ticket and present a valid, up-to-date IRATA Logbook.

If your qualification has expired, you will need to re-validate it before you can upgrade. This is per the IRATA Training, Assessment and Certification Scheme published on the 1st of August 2014.
