National Certificate in Industrial Rope Access
Industrial Rope Access (Elementary Rope Skills Level 3)
Vertical Horizonz New Zealand offers this full qualification. We are able to conduct this training at our premises or yours, as well as arrange suitable facilities throughout the country.
The standard delivery period is 10 working days, however we are offering this course based on a 6 day training package (with pre course study), therefore minimising the time a trainee is away from their position. This qualification has been written to provide the Industrial Rope Access Industry with a nationally recognised qualification. In this programme the group has directly avoided specifying technique; we recognise for example that there are many ways to ascend and a large variety of equipment to choose from. The purpose of the assessment is to confirm that the candidate can ascend safely using equipment that meets the specifications. We believe that this allows for greater diversification of technique among those who obtain this qualification. Theoretical sessions will be conducted during the course. You will need to be physically fit to pass the practical components of the assessment as you will be spending the majority of the time on ropes carrying out practical tasks and skill sets.
