FAQs

Q: What is rope access?
A: Rope Access is a method of fall protection and work positioning at height using ropes.  
 
Q: How fit should I be to participate in a course?
A: It is important to be reasonably fit, with the understanding that the course is very physical. Also it is important that you do not have any medical conditions that may be triggered or worsened by exertion.
 
Q: How long is the course?
A: The course is 6 days. 5 days of training, instead of the suggested 4 days, and one day for assessment. We offered 5 days of training instead of 4 to allow you some extra time to practice and to avoid trying to cover too much material in one day. The day generally starts around 8h00 and goes onto 16h30. But it differs from group to group.
 
Q: What should I bring?
A: Wear comfortable clothes, as you will be in a harness most of the day. Closed shoes are a must, but they do not have to be safety shoes. Only our Rope Access equipment may be used at our training facility. There is a shop within a short driving distance, otherwise bring lunch and refreshments. We provide tea and coffee.
 
Q: What is the difference between IRATA and RAFA?
A: IRATA is a British accreditation that is recognised internationally, whereas RAFA a South African accreditation that falls under the NQF (National Qualification Framework)
