Information for IRATA Courses:

The IRATA course fees of $2,200.00 NZD include 4 days of training plus one assessment day (5 days in total).

If the instructor or the candidate doesn’t think that assessment should be undertaken, candidates can come back on the next available course with space, and receive as many days extra training as required and undertake the assessment for no extra cost.

If a candidate fails the assessment, candidates are welcome to come back on the next available course with available space, and receive as many days extra training as required for free and undertake the assessment, the only cost will be $840 NZD for the extra assessment.

All candidates are required to complete a medical form for Courses, as they can be quite physically intensive. All information disclosed on these forms is kept private, and is not available to the public.

From the 1st of May 2014: all candidates wishing to re-validate IRATA qualifications must attend four days of training before they can sit the assessment. All existing IRATA technicians must supply their IRATA Logbook on the first day of training for review. Failure to present a correctly filled-out IRATA Logbook for upgrades and re-validations may result in the inability to sit Assessment.
