Rope Access Training

Structure Group offers IRATA certification in rope access at all three levels as defined by the IRATA Training and Certification Scheme.  This training is accepted by nearly all major rope companies and client operating sites.  We can also offer SPRAT certification upon request.  Certification in rope access does NOT guarantee you a job, anyone telling you that without providing offer of employment is simply lying. What it does do is compliment your current skill set, trade licence, inspection ticket etc. and offer additional employment and advancement opportunities.

Custom Courses

Our facility is also available for rent to fire departments, police, militray, SAR or USAR groups. Structure Group also offers expanded rope rescue training and confined space courses.

What makes our facility different?

We purpose built our facility for internal training and development, not as a training company. This meant our deciding factor at each junction was “What does the team or client need”, not “what is profitable”. After numerous inquiries we decided to open up courses to the public.

You will not find stage truss, scaffold, temporary rigging in our facility.  You will find steel, bar grating, ladders, columns, and beams that will reflect industrial environment and rigging challenges albeit a little cleaner.

Our instructors are full time field technicians with a minimum 7 years industry experience and they rotate into training slots as needed both for internal team development and training open enrollment courses.

Our courses run what 5 days training plus 1 day assessment.  Our fees start at $1850 per person regardless of level and are reduced for groups booking 4 or more in one course.  Preferred pricing is available to first respondents, military or government agencies.

Student Testimonials

Getting my level 3 with Chris at structure group reset the “bar” of rope access training. Passing the course is just part of their goals. Fully understanding the gear and having the knowledge behind our rigging and rescues were forefront. The ability to use this knowledge in our actual career was the main priority. Any time before, during, and after each training day Chris could be reached for direction, explanation and any questions I had. The facility in itself also was above and beyond, from its numerous levels of piperacks, confined space, overhangs, and 12” steel pipe offered endless options of actual possible scenarios. Training here will Show you what rope access is really about!

Well thought out gym design allowing ease of use by all levels. Great training provided from a well versed and passionate teacher. Low stress conditions and positive atmosphere give the student highest probability of retaining/gaining knowledge and skill sets needed to be a GOOD rope tech. One of the better gyms I’ve been to.
