      IRATA Direct Entry

      IRATA Direct Entry-2

      As of December 24, 2019, IRATA Direct Entries are obsolete, meaning this option is no longer available for technicians.

      IRATA direct entry applications will longer be accepted. If you recently have been given an IRATA direct entry approval letter from head office, you are allowed to continue on with the direct entry process until March 31, 2020. Approval letters after this date will be in valid. In other words, if you have an existing DE approval letter, you must be trained and assessed for this DE before March 31, 2020. 

      For technicians with significant rope access experience outside of the IRATA system, you may be eligible for conversion or accelerated entry into the IRATA certification scheme. At Pacific Ropes, we are able to facilitate a SPRAT to IRATA conversion training course.

      If you have any questions or want to inquire about your eligibility for the SPRAT to IRATA conversion, please send us an email or give us a ring!
