Can I do IRATA and SPRAT together?

Yes! We offer dual (IRATA & SPRAT) training courses for L1, L2, and L3. These courses allow you to take the IRATA and SPRAT training program during the same week. Our head office and training center is in Vancouver but we also have a training center in Edmonton to service the rope access alberta community! If you're thinking about doing your dual training with us, check out our training program below.


How long is the course?

The course is 5 days long. The first four days incorporates all your training, both theory and practical for the IRATA and SPRAT cirriculum (although it's mostly practical). And then the last day is the Assessment/Evaluation day. This is when a third party Examiner, separate from Pacific Ropes comes in to run the testing.


What is the cost?

The cost of an the dual course in Vancouver is $2300 plus GST.

What do I get at the end?

Once you pass your Assessment/Evaluation on the last day, you will receive a yellow copy or your Assessment/Evaluation form that will act as your temporary certification for the level you were assessed. This yellow copy is valid for 60 days while your IRATA and SPRAT ID cards, certificates, and logbooks (if you're a level 1) are mailed to you.



What time do the classes start?

The classes start at 8am every day and end around 4-4:30pm each day.


What do I need to bring?

We will provide all the equipment that you will need for training. If you have your own CSA approved helmet, you may bring that but it is not necessary. If you are thinking of training in Edmonton with us, you will need to wear long pants and steel toe boots. A welcome email will be sent to you after registration with additional details!



What can I expect?

Expect to be on your feet 90% of the time! The dual course is physically demanding and requires a certain fitness level. Be prepared to sweat! The courses consist of theory but will be mainly practical. Our group sizes are usually 6-8 with 2 instructors. All students receive 10% off equipment sales forever!
