About us

Information about Access Techniques

We 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.
