We are happy to announce that the Training Trust Fund will be able to reimburse up to $1,600 for SPRAT certification next year! There are three levels of certification available to interested rope access technicians:
- Level I Technician: An individual who performs rope access work. A Level I Technician may only work under the direct, on-site supervision of a Rope Access Lead Technician or Supervisor.
- Level II Technician: An individual who is responsible for physically conducting rope access operations and/or safety evaluations of rope access operations, including maintenance of associated access equipment and performs all Rope Access Lead Technician duties as assigned in the employer’s rope access work program.
- 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.
A complete listing of the requirements for each level of certification is detailed in SPRAT's Certification Requirements for Rope Access Work. For more information on the evaluation process, please see SPRAT's Evaluation Guidelines. SPRAT certification sessions can be found through their Online Calendar.
