Career Information

In the early days of rope access many technicians were drawn from those who started out as rock climbers, potholers and cavers; and many technicians have worked rock climbing instructors or have background is military service.  However, rope access is only a means of work positioning and as the industry has matured employers expect technicians to have a skill or profession eg electrician, NDT qualification, engineer etc.  If you are in possession of such skills you will find employment after qualifying as a rope technician very much easier.  Areas in which IRATA skills are deployed are listed here.
