Training program 

Work at height is divided into two categories, rope access and construction access. At our ERGON Centre, we run courses in both categories.  

Building access work 

At our centre, you will learn about the applicable standards and legislation on work at height. You will learn about the characteristics of the work and risk assessment. You will be introduced to the rights and obligations of workers in mountaineering work. On top of this, you will be introduced to the basic principles of rescue and belaying, and you will not be unfamiliar with the principles of knot tying. After completing the course, the trainee will gain the skills necessary to work on scaffolding, masts and roofs. 

Rope access work 

A rope course will enable you to become qualified for work where a rope is used. Learning requires specialised training, which is offered by the company "ERGON". Our instructors will teach you how to work safely with rope ascent and descent. You will learn the rules for tying knots used during work and you will learn organisation, risk assessment and also emergency plans. 

The training programme includes: 

  • legislation,  
  • principles of knot tying, 
  • causes of accidents, 
  • principles of rescue, 
  • work organisations,  
  • personal protective equipment, 
  • contingency plans at work, 
  • efficient use of auxiliary tools, 
  • principles of individual and collective belaying. 

Refresher training 

After completing the training, the trainee receives a certificate allowing him/her to practise the profession for three years afterwards. This is followed by a refresher course, but it is advisable to attend such training more often, e.g. every year. Nowadays, technology is changing all the time, so it makes sense to keep up to date with all the rules and tools.
