SPRAT recommends that rope access technicians maintain current certifications. SPRAT Re-certifications completed within 6 months prior to expiration of a current certification are valid for three years from the expiration date of that certification.
SPRAT recommends training prior to any evaluation session, including re-certification. A list of upcoming public evaluation sessions with associated training can be found HERE.
Training companies determine their own course costs, which may vary by location, duration, desired certification level, and other factors.
SPRAT’s charges a $100 USD fee per candidate in an evaluation session, which is frequently included in a training provider’s course costs.
SPRAT does not currently accredit rope access training providers. SPRAT currently focuses solely on approving Evaluation Session Hosts.
A step-by-step guide to host an evaluation session is provided HERE.
Following successful hosting of an evaluation session, training companies become eligible to be listed on SPRAT’s website HERE.
