About us

Access Techniques SheffieldWe specialise in teaching Industrial Rope Access to IRATA standards, and are based in Sheffield, UK. Our training centre is in a Grade II listed Victorian Barracks, where the 14m high Drill Hall provides an excellent all-weather training area on beautiful arched steelwork; a scale version of that used in G-MEX and St. Pancras.

Trainees are assured of a variety of realistic situations and genuine exposure to height – we train to 12m as standard. The video below gives an overview of our training centre and staff, and describes the content and requirements of our training courses in more detail.

Access Techniques was set up in 2010 by Adam Long and Aide Jebb, who together have over 20 years experience in the industry, working both in the UK and abroad across many different areas of industry from TV to petrochemicals.

We supply a broad range of rope access equipment. If you’re not sure what you need, just get in touch and we can advise. We also provide bespoke courses for Work at Height, Confined space access and offer PPE inspection services.

We are members of IRATA – the Industrial Rope Access Trade Association – no. 8093/T
