About the Course

Filmed at Petzl’s North American Headquarters, "Rope Access" refers to a set of techniques where a two rope system with specialized hardware are used as the primary means of providing access and support to workers. It provides a safe, cost-effective, and efficient means of accessing structures and geologic features for inspection, maintenance, and construction.

The Society of Professional Rope Access Technicians (SPRAT) is a member-driven organization that advances the safe use of rope access through education, standards development, and administering certifications. In addition, SPRAT supports companies and technicians using rope access with regulatory support, networking, and opportunities to participate in developing industry-consensus standards.

The Rope Access Project: SPRAT Certification Primer is a three-part series that specifically covers the three different levels of SPRAT Certification which professionally certifies a rope access technician and prepares them for safe working at height and a continuous model for technique retention.
