IRATA rope access bookings now open
Pinnacle Safety and Training is proud to announce that from mid-October 2019, we will be delivering IRATA Rope Access training from our training centre in Silverwater, Sydney.
Pinnacle CEO, Paul Botwright said this is a major milestone for our organisation and further demonstrates our commitment to rope access workers and to businesses who require work to be performed at heights.
“Pinnacle has been delivering Rope Access training since our inception in 2009,” Paul said. “Our decision to apply for IRATA membership was made in an effort to further expand the employment opportunities for Australian rope access workers.”
“The IRATA qualification is arguably the most widely-recognised certification for rope access technicians across the globe,” he said.
“IRATA qualified workers have the greatest rope access employment opportunities, particularly in the oil, gas, mining and construction industries.”
“Furthermore, it is an internationally-recognised qualification, meaning these job opportunities aren’t limited to Australia’s shoreline.”
“A lot of work has gone in to developing our IRATA program and we are very proud of the course we have developed,” Paul said.
“I believe that our program will produce Australia’s most highly-skilled, employable rope access technicians.”
“We are now working towards seeking accreditation for some of our other training centres so we can deliver the program nationwide.”
More information on our IRATA program is available on our IRATA course page.

The training was excellent - I learned a lot. The trainer encouraged participants to work at their own pace whenever possible, which was great (this is how I learn best).
