We are leading providers of Working at Height training and offer a wide range of courses, most of which are fully accredited by ECITB, PASMA, MATS and the Global Wind Organisation (GWO).

Our experience as providers of working at height rescue services has allowed us to develop realistic, practical and safe training on our state-of-the-art working at height facilities. Our nationwide working at height facilities are designed to replicate real-life work at height scenarios such as wind turbines, rooftops, ladders and communication masts. The facilities at our training centres feature external ladders, hatches, rooftop anchor beams, handrails, slopes, gates and a range of internal furnishings which allow us to provide training which can be tailored to be applicable to a wide range of industries and scenarios.

What is the right working at height training course for me?

Our courses comply with all current regulations and the requirements of the Work at Height Regulations 2005. We offer a range of courses with those who successfully complete the course, having the option to either choose an MRS certificate or one from the relevant awarding body.

We recently had a 3-day Advanced Working at Height & Rescue course at MRS Training & Rescue. This was a very informative course and vital for anyone working at height. The training facility is very good with a great instructor. We have gained vital knowledge on which equipment to use in which situation and how to use, maintain & inspect it. I would highly recommend this course. We now have the correct training to tackle awkward gutters at height :-)

Completed a Work at Height Rescue course with MRS. This was an excellent course that used scenarios that were very applicable for working in our environment. Excellent trainers that had very good knowledge of equipment and techniques needed to make a successful rescue.

Derek Main, Northern Lighthouse Board

Andy was great in the Work at Heights training course, very knowledagable and felt safe in his hands. The training itself was practical with a small amount of theory which was then reinforced out there. Great teacher and location.

Tristan Pulford, Finch Consulting

High level of professionalism from the Staff. They were very prepared and knew exactly how to do their job. Very pleased with the experience. I truly recommend!
