What is Irata?

Irata (industrial rope access trade association) is an organization of global significance. It is an association whose members are technicians and companies who work on ropes or do training for rope access work throughout the world.
Irata is recognized as the world's leading authority on industrial rope access. The association's aim is to support the activities of its members and technicians, and in the promotion and development of its safe system for rope access work.

Irata qualification system

Irata qualifications are based on a code of “best practice” called icop, and on a training and certification scheme called tacs.
Each irata technician has an “irata logbook” in which to record all hours worked within the irata system.
Irata technician training is structured into three levels, level 1, level 2 and level 3. The course length for each level is 5 days, 4 days of training and 1 assessment day. During the first 4 days, the candidates learn a wide range of techniques for working on rope, including related rescue. In addition to professional development, the goal is to pass the final exam (day 5) conducted by an external assessor.
