Applied Technical Services provides rope access certification training for technicians seeking SPRAT accreditation or reaccreditation. SPRAT stands for the Society of Professional Rope Access Technicians, an administrative body that establishes industry-recognized rope access standards in North America. Most employers hiring rope access technicians will look for workers certified by either SPRAT, or the European counterpart IRATA.
Rope access is an in-demand work-at-heights skill, which enables personnel to navigate a system of ropes to scale, descend, or move laterally across buildings, construction sites, and tall structures. Because rope access allows technicians to reach high, tight, or unstable work areas, it is an efficient and safe alternative to scaffolding installation. As a professional discipline, rope access is often utilized in facade inspections, pressure washing, painting, and building installations, among other uses.
