We are leading providers of Working at Height training and offer a wide range of courses that are fully accredited by City & Guilds.

Our experience as providers of working at height rescue services has allowed us to develop bespoke, realistic, practical and safe training on our state-of-the-art working at height facilities. 

These nationwide facilities are designed to replicate real-life work at height scenarios and include external ladders, hatches, rooftop anchor beams, handrails, slopes, gates and a range of internal furnishings. This allows us to tailor training to a wide range of industries and situations.

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

Our work at height experts have created unique courses that have been through the City & Guilds Assured Product route and all are accredited by the awarding body. Our courses also 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 a course have the option to either choose a City & Guilds or MRS certificate.

MRS Training and Rescue have excellent instructors and the training facilities are exceptional.

Paul Lucas, Versatile Mechanical Services

Very well set out course - very good instructor - Kevin, I would recommend this company without hesitation

Greg Lumsden, AFS Technologies

Convenient location at a good price. Tutor covered course comprehensively and his background experience in the rescue services added value to the content rather than being purely theory.

Ron Davies, The Royal Mint

Advanced working at height and rescue course. A fantastic in depth course that I left feeling l'd actually learned something. The instructor Brett was fantastic and even though I did the course with 2 people from MRS, I always felt included and I benefitted from a wider range industry knowledge. Overall, a very comprehensive, well presented and well delivered course. The practical was especially well presented and really gave an actual feeling of rescue. I truly recommend this course and provider and before you, no I'm not paid for this review.

James Sharpe, Imperium Automation

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.
