SPRAT Level I Rope Access Technician

The Society of Professional Rope Access Technicians (or SPRAT) is the peak rope access industry body in the United States. SPRAT has now gained a solid representation in Australia & in line with this, Safety Access & Rescue is proud to be offering SPRAT Level 1, 2 & 3 programs at our Lawson facility.

The three levels of SPRAT qualifications are internationally recognized and can be summarized as follows:

Level I Technician

Level III Technician

An individual who is responsible for the overall rope access work site and performs all Rope Access Supervisor duties as assigned in the employer’s rope access work program.
