We often get asked if there are any good study resources for SPRAT and IRATA assessments. We found there was a lot of information out there but it was all over the place. We’ve brought together some of the best study material, suitable for IRATA and SPRAT assessments, into one place to help our techs pass their assessments first time.

The Rope Access USA team includes some grizzly L3s who can be persuaded (by strong drink) to dispense their wisdom for eager young technicians. We’ve documented their drunk ramblings and organized them into guides to help you pass IRATA and SPRAT assessments.

These guides are being constantly updated as we find and create new content. If there’s something that you need to know then please get in touch and we’ll help.
