SPRAT Training Levels and Requirements
SPRAT Level 1 Training
No prior rope experience is necessary. This level 1 course covers all the basics for a rope access worker to safely complete rigging projects and rope access jobs.
In this course technicians will be learning soft skills such as a basic understanding of job site safety and hazard awareness, as well as hard skills such as ascending and descending ropes, moving laterally from one set of ropes to the other, inspection of equipment, aid climbing, rescues from rope and hauling to name a few.
SPRAT Level 2 Training
If a technician is already a SPRAT level 1, then she or he shall provide proof that they have achieved a minimum of 500 hours on rope/rigging and have at least 6 months of work experience. If the technician wishes to test directly into level 2 without having taken a level 1 class, then the technician shall provide documented experience of working with a two-rope system for at least 500 hours. This documentation shall be verified either by a Rope Access Program Administrator, Rope Access Supervisor or a Client.
In this course the technicians must meet all level 1 requirements as well as have a deeper understanding of rigging along with some more complex hard skills such as rescue from aid climbing and load sharing anchors.

To qualify for this course the candidate has to be a level 2 certificate with a minimum of 500 documented hours as a level 2 technician and worked as a level 2 for at least 6 months.
