About the Course

Filmed at Petzl’s North American Headquarters, "Rope Access" refers to a set of techniques where a two rope system with specialized hardware are used as the primary means of providing access and support to workers. It provides a safe, cost-effective, and efficient means of accessing structures and geologic features for inspection, maintenance, and construction.

The Rope Access Project: Primer is a three-part series that explicitly covers the three definitive levels of rope access skill-sets and prepares technicians for safe working at height and is a continuous model for technique retention.
