Technical Rope Access

RIIWHS204D Work Safely at Heights mapped to AS4488 Rope Suspension Work

The Technical Rope Access program is a nationally recognised qualification designed specifically to accommodate user groups who require rope based mobility skills to carry out work tasks, but for whom conventional qualification systems such as SPRAT/IRATA might not be appropriate.

The Technical Rope Access course is ideal for emergency services personnel, theatre & stunt riggers, construction workers, engineers, geologists and any other user group who operate within a specific set of parameters & simply want to add rope mobility skills to their work method.  If you specifically require rope access skills for working in the natural environment, please see our Rope Access for Natural Surface Work course.


Course Outline
The Technical Rope Mobility course typically covers:-
  • Current WHS legislation and the international rope access standard ISO 22846
  • Understanding fall protection and work in suspension requirements
  • Rope access equipment
  • Knots, hitches & bends and anchor rigging
  • Rope mobility (ascending, descending, lateral movement, passing obstacles such as knots re-belays and deviations)
  • Using tools and equipment whilst in suspension and
  • Mid rope self & partner rescues


The course duration is typically three days but may vary due to specific client requirements.
