    • I'm glad I could help.! For training companies, see our main website here: https://www.rigg-access.com/map/companies/index.asp?mapview=ropeaccesstrainer You can see operational companies (who employ techs) by selecting it from the drop down list on the page above. There are a lot of other resources in the main site that you can use for more information, I'd encourage you to take a look around. In addition to the above, there's a Facebook group here which will be a big help for you for inspiration and guidance: https://www.facebook.com/womeninropeaccess We're available to help here anytime so post any questions etc and we'll do our best to help.
    • Thanking you infinitely for the answer, you made my day and probably my next year! It is much too hard than I can understand,  so far, but even if I know I need a miracle, starting with the UK driving licence first and then my own car. It will take longer but I would like to do this.  Still the question is how to find such companies, a research won't give the answers.  Thank you once again, Claudia 
    • Hi Claudia Welcome to the forum! There are a lot of women working in Rope Access, not a huge amount by percentage but enough all the same to let you know that what you are asking is achievable. Like most careers, Rope Access depends on what other skills you can bring to the table, however, that may not necessarily just be qualifications or experience - what is almost as important is having the right mindset to achieve your aims. You seem to have that 'go for it' attitude which is really important - starting from the bottom is difficult, tough even, but still achievable with determination. A lot of companies supply kit, I'd go so far as to say its the majority who supply kit so that becomes less of an issue for you. The only issue I see is your transport situation which is relatively straightforward to solve. All this people with excellent skills you read about all had to start somewhere.
    • Hello everybody, Planning to achieve my IRATA Level 1 on March next year. No car or equipment yet or experience in this field, besides I'm a woman. Is this mission impossible? Reading about so many people having so many and various, such incredible skills. I wonder if starting this is really possible. I still don't know if there are companies that provide the necessary equipment and travel or if there is someone willing to make his / her own team. There are many questions I would like to get an answer but not very clear where to start from. The only thing I know is that is not a problem for me to start a new profession no matter how difficult that can be. I hope someone has a few minutes spare time to help me understand more. Thank you in advance indeed!
