Purpose

Graduates of this qualification will be able to lead industrial rope access jobs independently.

Rope access refers to safe methods of working at height where ropes and associated equipment are used to gain access to and from the workplace, and to be supported there. It includes inspection and testing, maintenance and repair, cleaning and painting, geotechnical and construction.

What does it Cost?

You will earn while you learn. That means you don’t have to fork out for large student loans or work multiple jobs to pay the bill. The NZ Government is right behind getting people into trades, so they help subsidise your training.

From the 1st of January 2023 the cost after subsidy from the Government is $42 per week. This amount can be paid by direct debit – weekly, fortnightly, or monthly to suit. The weekly amount is charged until you complete the required duration of the programme, and you are fully signed off by an Assessor.
