Rope Access Training and Certification Courses
ATS provides rope access training and certification courses. Candidates enroll in these programs to pursue or further a career working at heights. Each of our five-day classes is SPRAT-compliant. We break them up into four sessions for hands-on instruction and one day for evaluation. Candidates that complete our class and pass examination receive certification as a technician. Having done so earns SPRAT’s approval, qualifying them to perform rope access work professionally.

See Our Facility
We understand candidates need to get the most practical benefit out of their limited training time. As such, our teacher hosts as much of instruction as possible out of the classroom and in the obstacle course. Our custom-built, brand-new, indoor facility gives students an ideal space to gain some hands-on experience, applying and perfecting the skills they will need in this career path. Here, students will tie the knots, assemble the rope access systems, and perform the rescues they will use on the job — as befits the level of their training.
