IRATA is the leading international authority on industrial rope access.
Industrial rope access has been developed by IRATA International for over 25 years to a point where it is the chosen means of access for much of the work in the offshore oil and gas industry as well as a range of projects in construction, civil engineering, the built and natural environment and much more. Its success is based on thorough training and strict work guidelines that deliver an unrivalled safe working record year after year. The environmental, efficiency and economic benefits have resulted in growing international support for industrial rope access ahead of alternative means of access. Read More
IRATA Training in Sydney
Get your IRATA training from Sydney’s leading experts in IRATA rope access. We will teach you every skill you need to know so you can work in exciting careers that can literally take you to the top of the town.
You’re 30 metres off the ground, suspended on a platform that’s only a metre wide and two metres long. At this height, every gust of wind just feels so much more powerful than it does on the ground. Up here, it all seems so quiet. The noise and chaos of the city traffic below you are lost in the distance, almost like the people below really are the ants that they appear to be in your view.
Now imagine that you’re not just here to enjoy the scenery, you’ve got a serious job to do. Maybe you’re just cleaning the windows of an office building, adding a fresh coat of paint to the Harbour Bridge, or you’re installing a poster of the latest show that’s on at the Sydney Opera House. How sure can you be that you can do this job safely and efficiently?
When you are IRATA qualified, it opens up a lot of possibilities for you in a job category where qualified workers are always in demand and always pays well.

What you will learn
When you study for your IRATA qualification with Atlas Access, you get comprehensive training from qualified and experienced instructors in a hands-on environment. Your safety is assured, but you will also have the opportunity to really challenge yourself and discover what you are able to do.
You will learn all the skills to enable you to work safely and effectively in places most other people would avoid working. It may be tough, but the rewards are worth it, and you will feel like there’s no challenge that can stand between you and success.
Each of the progressive units in this course is designed to help you get the best from yourself and your instructors so you can advance with confidence. Units include:
- Work Safely at Heights (RIIWHS204D) – exactly as the name suggests, you’ll learn to work safely at heights. This involves much more than you may be expecting. Mainly you will understand how to interpret and identify risk, as well as the appropriate actions to take to minimize risk.
- Enter and Work in Confined Spaces (RIIWHS202D) – rope access work can sometimes involve working in more challenging environments like confined spaces. In this unit you will learn all you need to know in order to be able to do this safely.
- Operate Breathing Apparatus, Open Circuit (PUAFIR207B) – working in confined spaces and in certain environmental conditions may also require using artificial breathing apparatus to provide air while you are working. This unit will teach you everything you need to know about operating the equipment properly.
- Undertake Confined Space Rescue (PUASAR025A) – of all the units you complete; this may be the most important one. When people are trapped in confined spaces, time is of the essence. Personnel who are trained in confined space rescue are vital in these situations.
- Provide First Aid (HLTAID003) – a comprehensive unit covering the full spectrum of first aid treatment, including basic anatomy and physiology.
- Perform Tower Rescue (UETTDFR04B) – the most usual, though certainly not the only, situation where the skills taught in this unit will be required is in rescuing people trapped on ESI towers.
- Perform Pole Top Rescue (UETTDRF02B) – being stuck on top of a pole may possibly feel more distressing than being stuck on top of a tower, so rescuing people from the tops of poles is always a handy skill to have. This unit will teach how to do this safely.
- Undertake Vertical Rescue (PUASAR032A) – this unit covers all the skills needed for performing vertical rescue operations.
