Having read the offshore thread posted recently, there seems to be a lot of shared knowledge on the site which I need to hear!
I am looking to get into rope access and not necessarily offshore work. I currently have no experience but look to do the irata level 1 this summer.
I have got the c pack from Rigg access so I know of the need to get in a trade first. I’m 21 at the moment and I’m not looking to go down the ndt route just yet although it does interest me, right now I just want to get a foot in the door doing rope access work. As I’ve got a few years ahead of me I wouldn’t mind doing some window cleaning abroad but again I’ll take anything!
Real question is what trade should I train for?
Any advice is much appreciated I have experience with ropes through rock climbing.Posted 4 years agohammyukMember
If there is a trade there will be a rope tech use.Posted 4 years ago
Everything from a visual inspection, through video, ndt, etc, painting,plumbing, electrical, rigging, blasting, cutting, geotechnical, and more.
Been doing it 24yrs and there isn’t much we haven’t done other than maybe accountancy 😛
You really need a background trade to make you employable as the “meat market” of IRATA is turning out L1’s faster than they can be assessed or employed.
