IRATA International’s rope access system is a safe method of working at height, where ropes and associated equipment are used to gain access to and egress from the workplace, and to be supported at it.
Originally IRATA (Industrial Rope Access Trade Association) was formed to solve maintenance challenges in the offshore oil and gas industry but through the course of years it has also developed its own techniques for use in a wide range of repair, maintenance, inspection and access work.
IQTC is now an IRATA Probationary Training member, thus becoming the first authorized rope access training center in Latvia to provide an approved training and certification.

Independent IRATA International re-assessments are required every three years at all levels, following a minimum of four days of training.
Rope access Technicians not engaged in rope access work for six months or more should attend refresher training.
