Visit our Fife training centre, only a 40 minute drive from Edinburgh. We specialise in providing working at heights training courses, rope access training courses and training courses for the renewable energy sector.

We also provide First Aid training courses, Fire Fighting training courses and Confined Space training courses.

Our team of experts are here to provide the best high ropes training and working at heights training in Scotland and the North of England. Our purpose built facilities are designed to help you learn to use the skills you require in your working life – so we can guarantee you won’t be stuck in a classroom!


Our training centre in Fife has purpose built facilities that allow us to provide realistic and practical training. As well as 12 dedicated training rooms, our centre has an extensive range of confined space vessels, tunnels and crawl spaces in a variety of head heights and with different entry points. The 100 metres of crawl space can also be filled with artificial smoke, which helps to recreate scenarios delegates may face when working in confined spaces. 

In addition to our confined space facilities – our centre offers an expansive 8m scaffold system which we use to provide practical working at height training. The system is designed to simulate a variety of scenarios and features caged ladders, vertical ladders, trap doors, gates, a sloping roof, a flat roof and a freestanding tower. 

Our centre also has a purpose built outdoor 17 metre high tower and a decommissioned wind turbine that features a hub, nacelle and blades. We use this as part of our courses designed for wind turbine training for the renewables sector, and our courses are accredited by the Global Wind Organisation.

Our state-of-the-art confined space training courses allow you to train in ‘real life’ scenarios – so you can practice putting what you’re taught into action. During the course, you’ll learn how to work in a confined space and what do in an emergency situation. Our trainers are rescuers, so you can trust you’re learning from the best.

We use MRS for a lot of our operatives and staff training, always found them to be of high quality. Training staff have a vast knowledge of all aspects of what they do, and pass on the information in a relaxing way, which helps settle nerves. Would highly recommend.
