Can I do my Level 2 or 3 Upgrade?
Yes you can. The training sessions held cover all levels at the same time because there is never more than 8 people on the training course. Its great to have a mix of skill levels on the course. On assessment day, you will be assessed to you level.
How many hours do I need to upgrade my level?
You need at least 1000 hours logged and signed off ( preferably by a level 3) these hours should demonstrate a broad range of experience in different rope access situations. The other thing you need is at least one year of experience at that level before stepping up a level and your current level has to be in date.
Do I need anything before start my level one?
As IRATA training is an international competency system, it doesn't teach local working safely at height regulations and laws. In Australia, it is a requirement for for workers at height to have the Work Safely At Heights one day training. If you want to complete this shortly before or after your course with us, we can offer this at a discounted rate. Not all Work Safely at Heights courses are the same. We take a particular pride in ours, so if you do train elsewhere, please make sure they have a rock solid reputation for good training in this field.
What Industries Can I work In With an Irata Qualification?
There are so many industry sectors using rope access as a routine method to replace scaffolding and elevated work platforms.
The Oil and Gas industry have been instrumental in the development of safe working procedures that include rope access when working at height.
Heavy Industry, like mining, refineries, major construction, road and rail all see rope access as a safe and reliable way of achieving the work they need doing.
Construction and maintenance industries are the main players for rope access on the more domestic city based work front. In this area you can find yourself cleaning windows, sealing expansion joints and painting to name just a few.
How Much Will I earn as a Rope Access Technician?
This varies a lot unfortunately. However, You should safely be expecting in excess of $30 per hour to start with. Please understand, that as a fresh level one, you are a trainee. You may need to take a bit of a low wage just while you get your hours up and prove just how good you are. Once you have some hours under your belt and your reputation as a hard worker and a productive team member is increasing, so will your wages.
The highest wages I have heard of are paid to level 3’s offshore working nights. These guys can earn up to $180 per hour!Ready To Book? Click Here
