  5. Rope Access welders are paid decent rates (depending on codings) and are in demand in most global locations. Rope Access skills are used in most countries around the world now and there's a huge market for Rope Access in the UK so it is a valid option for you.
  6. So I have been welding for almost ten years, and enjoy what I do. Ive amassed a lot of information on the topic. I also like to climb and have been learning when in France on holidays and around some spots in the UK. I currently have no experience working from ropes, but I have worked quite a few jobs controlling and working from various MEWP's . Does anybody here know how Id go about finding work in this field of if its even a thing over here? I have a particular passion for welding aluminium at the moment and think being able to do that would be pretty fun up in the air.
  7. NDT pays way more. Stage 2 training should be done on the job
  8. Arent you the business development manager at Altitec?
  9. That's a surprise, I actually thought rigging would pay more as there are so many people doing inspection. I'll be taking UTG first. So rigger stage 2 can be done at a training centre? From the website it says it should be done on the job so I got confused. I plan to get into stage rigging which is why I'm considering doing oil and gas rigging first since there aren't much events now but if the money is better in inspection that'd be a tough choice.
  10. NDT covers a variety of different subjects, with most of them paying more than rigging - which NDT discipline are you doing? OPITO is a global standard and recognized everywhere, the Level 2 training is 'hands on' and can be done by anyone who has passed the L1 theory. The L2 will allow you to work under supervision on rigging projects - once you have enough experience you can take your L3 rigger training and exam.
  11. Hi I just passed my level 1 irata and my company will be sending me for NDT level 1. I want to specialise in rigging but am not sure how to go about it. Is Opito the gold standard in the industry? I understand stage 1 is just a test but how do you become stage 2, it's a bit confusing and can a stage 1 rigger get a job? Any other information will help, thanks in advance. Zaicliff
  12. There is no entertainment industry in the UK right now due to COVID. I left there in June as it was totally dead, it is even worse now. Pay rates will be down on industry start up as there are few jobs and too many people competing for them.
  13. Hi! I'm currently a rope access technician in the Marine, oil and gas industry (1st job) . My contract is ending in 9 months. I'd like to specialise and focus on the entertainment industry as that's closer to my true self. What jobs are there? Pay rates? How to go about finding a job in the entertainment industry as a rope acces technician? Sustainability? Thanks in advance
  14. That sucks! But expected because of covid. Less salary? In Singapore they pay a rope access rigger in the entertainment industry around $200 - $300/day depending on experience. Pretty good to me, I've only heard it from 1 person though. What kind of jobs are there besides rigging? Any certification I should look into as well?
  15. I'll check with them so far Prudential has classed rope access as a level 3 occupation (1 lowest risk - 4 highest risk).
  16. Haven't approached AIA, I'm leaning towards Great eastern for now but I'll check with AIA too and update here
  17. I've used AIA years ago for rigging jobs so would imagine they would also cover rope access by now. Its a very safe industry and well established so they've had a long time to work out there stats on working out their policies.
  18. Entertainment industry all over the planet is on its knees right now. Expect less salary and less time off when compared to oil and gas. Its compensated tho by the better lifestyle when you are on the road.

  20. I've approached various Singapore insurance companies (prudential, great eastern and NTUC). They catagorise jobs based on how dangerous it is so all major insurance company cover rope access technician. This post would be good for newcomers.
  21. Have you tried AIA..? https://www.aia.com.sg/en/our-products/life-protection.html
  22. Hi I'm a 21 year old Singaporean who is starting his 1st day on the job this Monday. I've been searching insurance that will cover me in the event I get injured at work or outside of work, get chronic illness or mental illness in the long run. Can anyone advise me? I'm struggling to find 1 that is suitable.
  23. Rope Access live demand by region is here: https://rigg-access.com/admin/personnel/regional-skills-demand.asp Global skills demand is here: https://rigg-access.com/admin/personnel/global-skills-demand.asp Electrician (COMPEX) is always in demand, as are welders and pipefitters. NDT pays good rates and offers a multitude of different career options. Painting blasting is popular but very weather dependent and there's a lot of competition. As I said earlier, your IRATA L2 wont really give you much of an edge finding work, whilst it's always good to move up a level don't upg
  24. I currently work for a rope access firm that specialises installing signs/banners for big name clients all over the UK. This also includes minor scaffold frame building amongst other things. The jobs are always different and has helped me gain a lot of confidence on a rope and also experience working with a whole range of tools on a rope. We are also sub-contracted to a company that installs and services smoke vents around prisons, shopping centres etc. Could you point me in the right direction of a trade that is high in demand off shore so I can look into courses as I’m pretty certain that’s
  25. We've been using drones in our rope access teams for a while now, thery are a very capable addition to the capabilities of the team. We use it as just another tool though.
  26. You wont find any work offshore with just a Level 1 qualification. You need your offshore survival, medical, MIST etc etx etc.. even then you still wont find work until you have a skill to use when you get to the worksite. Rope Access is only a way to reach the worksite, you'll need to do something once you get ther.
