Our Training Facility
Our main

Our main structure is a large enough working platform to accommodate a full course at one time. This allows the Instructors to deliver a more fluid course without interruptions of having students at ground level whilst other students perform their tasks at height.
The main 9m training structure has been designed to gain maximum potential from the students and will allow for rope access, rigging and climbing skills to take place. The aim is to develop the tower as time goes by to allow more than 1 course to be delivered at one time but not being disruptive to each courses delivery.

The facility has a number of other training towers on site to hone the workers skills and techniques on. These range from an 18m Rasmussen tower and an 19m Slimline self supporting mast that can be dismantled and reinstalled to full height. We also offer training in the installation of mobile towers.

We have also developed a Rooftop structure that looks at identifying the risks of working on a rooftop either in the potential of a fall or in a protective area.

We aim to keep the costs as low as possible without compromising the level of delivery. We feel our rates are very competitive and also offer reduced rates for those that support us. All of these rates are available on the website or on request.

With Northampton being central to most of England and well known for being the hub of the rigging industry, the location is well suited for ease of travel. We have access to most of the arterial routes across the midlands making it simple to travel in all directions.
