Should I do IRATA or SPRAT Training?

Both associations have their pros and cons. IRATA, although from the UK, is recognized internationally. SPRAT, based in North America, has a strong loyalty within the local Rope Access companies. Your first job maybe working for an employer who is an IRATA member; but, you may also find yourself later working for another company who is SPRAT loyal.
