Course Language: English


We offer you a wire rope inspection course which is especially designed for the working field of ropes courses. The course was developed in the UK, because there had been nothing comparable in the industry.

The 2-day course will provide attendees with sufficient theoretical and practical knowledge to inspect cable in a ropes course and to understand when wire ropes should be retired. On day one, a more theoretical session will be delivered covering such topics as types of wire rope construction, wire rope fatigue, wire rope abrasion, wire rope corrosion, lightening and other damage. The second day will reflect inspection of wire rope in a more practical way and according to the ISO 4309: 2013 with its criteria for retiring cable.

The course fulfils the requirements for the 'ERCA Inspector' training scheme.


We will provide you with a script. There is an assessment at the end of the course. After the course a certificate will be issued to all those who successfully complete the written and practical assessments.

Equipment - We would kindly like to ask you to bring following with you

  • Leather gloves for handling cable
  • Vernier measure
  • Safety glasses
  • Small suede brush
  • Tape measure
  • Pen and note pad
  • Mouth-Nose-Covering
