What is Rope Access?

Rope access provides a safe, cost-efficient, and effective means of accessing structures and geologic features for rescue, inspection, maintenance, and construction.

New TEEX Courses

That is why TEEX is offering new Society of Professional Rope Access Technicians (SPRAT®) training for anyone who needs rope access – tower technicians, law enforcement, wind turbine technicians, firefighters, window washers, ski lift inspection and repair personnel, dam inspectors, amusement park repair personnel, you name it.

Our five-day course is taught at three different skill levels:

  • Level One (CEL301)
  • Level Two (CEL302)
  • Level Three (CEL303)

After four days of hands-on techniques, participants will receive a one-day evaluation consisting of a demonstration of skills and a written test.

SPRAT® Certification

Successful completion of both parts of the evaluation will result in a provisional certificate. Upon review, SPRAT® will issue a SPRAT® certificate.

A SPRAT® certification provides instant recognition and credibility for the technicians who carry it, and the companies who invest in it.

In turn, companies that hire rope access services will look for the SPRAT® certification, and will know you offer the industry’s best in technical achievement.
