Altitude courses: qualifications and authorizations at height for employees in your company
We invite you to familiarize yourself with our training offer in the field such as work at heights (including mountaineering work). Our altitude courses cover both construction access and rope access. Our offer includes altitude courses for people who would like to acquire knowledge from scratch to an advanced level, as well as reminding altitude courses. The substantive scope of our classes covers the topics of safety, pre-medical first aid and the issues of access to confined spaces and work at heights, in theoretical and practical terms. As you can see in the following reading, our educational projects (ie mountaineering course) are designed and implemented based on the specific training needs of our clients.
Employee training: an obligation, but also an investment
The law regulating the activity of a given enterprise often requires obligatory training of employees in specific areas. It is no different in the case of companies employing employees who perform work at heights. Each employee should meet the conditions specified by law, including have a height license, supported by a certificate / certificate. It should be remembered that the obtained altitude qualifications may be time-limited and should be renewed by updating the employee's knowledge (participation in reminding training). However, it is worth bearing in mind that employee training (in this case, high-level courses) does not have to be only a legal obligation, but may result from the real needs of the company, both as a business entity and an employer. Staff training, in the area of work at heights (e.g. mountaineering work), affects the efficiency and profitability of performing the commissioned tasks, and on the other hand, creates the possibility of optimal use of the employees' potential and ensures their safety and comfort at work. Staff training is therefore an investment in the company's development and allows it to strengthen its image as a reliable employer and modern business partner.

Conditions that should be met by each of the listeners
Altitude courses are dedicated to people who work at heights in unsecured places. The law stipulates that a student of our course may only be a person who:
- is over 18 years of age,
- has at least elementary education,
- presents a certificate of an occupational medicine doctor that there are no health contraindications for performing work at height.
Categories of trainings conducted
- construction access (the need to move and work with the use of scaffolding, portable or permanently attached ladders, platforms or other structures),
- rope access (the need to move and work with the use of equipment, i.e. safety ropes, mechanisms based on rope systems).
The decision about choosing a training option is made by the employer. Most often, this choice is based on the type of tasks entrusted to employees and the need for them to use a specific type of equipment.
The content of the training
Each time, training is carried out on the basis of an analysis of the training needs of our clients. The analysis in question takes into account not only the legal requirements, but also the conditions of a given industry and important aspects related to the scope of the client's business. As part of the substantive program of our training, the following issues are implemented:
- health and safety requirements and legal requirements for work at height,
- characteristics of work at height,
- hazards occurring during the performance of mountaineering works,
- rules for the selection, use and control of equipment,
- principles of individual and collective insurance,
- practical skills related to work at height,
- rescue techniques.
A student who has completed both parts of the course: theoretical and practical, will receive an altitude qualification (certificate / certificate).
