Industrial rope access started to evolve in the late seventies/early eighties and owes many of its techniques and equipment to caving and pot holing. Caving and pot holing relies on the single rope technique, whereas industrial rope access relies on a twin rope technique. This is a much safer way to work as you always have a back-up rope should your working rope fail.
This course is physically and mentally demanding and will not suit everyone. Ideally candidates should be in possession of an applicable full industrial medical certificate, though this is not a requirement.
