No previous rope access experience is necessary, however an appropriate physical and mental aptitude for technical tasks while working at height is of utmost importance. Participants will be asked to perform moderate to strenuous activities. Candidates will be required to sign a Liability Release Form and a Statement of Medical Condition confirming the absence of known medical conditions that might preclude their ability to safely work at height.
