Mountaineering course

Welcome to the mountaineering course with rope access

Lectures and in a specially prepared classroom

According to the legislation, work carried out on a surface at least 1 metre above ground or floor level is work at height and is among the particularly dangerous jobs. Employers are obliged to ensure that employees are properly trained and equipped with individual protective equipment. 

Entitlements are essential to work in many professions such as: 

  • stuntmen; 
  • fitters; 
  • builders; 
  • maintainers of telecommunications or power lines; 
  • Employees: 
  • window cleaning at height, 
  • offshore platforms, 
  • engaged in cleaning or painting the facades of buildings, 
  • and many others. 

ERGON training objectives

The ERGON Personnel Improvement Centre tailors professional height courses to the requirements of the type of work involved. Completion of the training course provides a solid foundation for working at height in rope access and construction.  

The aim of our courses is first and foremost to acquire the necessary skills, to work safely at lower or higher heights and to increase efficiency.  

ODK ERGON instructors are qualified professionals. They have a great deal of mountaineering experience. Therefore, in addition to theory, they pass on valuable real-life lessons. We hope that the trainees will appreciate all the more how important it is to follow all the rules they learn during the training. 

We are experienced in many types of mountaineering courses for work at height. We also train Mountain Volunteer Rescue Service, Border Guard, Volunteer Fire Brigade units, Government Protection Bureau, District and Central Mine Rescue Stations, Army, State Protection Service, Anti-Terrorist Units, CBŚ, ABW , as well as smaller or larger companies providing services at heights:  

  • stuntmen,  
  • rope park staff,  
  • artificial climbing walls,  
  • other entities. 

We divide mountaineering work into access work: 

  • construction, 
  • rope. 

Mountaineering training in rope access techniques 

Rope access is the use of equipment, ropes to determine the position of a worker. It is most often used for short-duration work at considerable heights, in condensed urban areas or other places that are difficult to access. Such access is used wherever mobile work platforms and scaffolding cannot be used and it is risky or not economically viable.  

The course enables you to become qualified at height to work with rope not only for belaying, but also to work in abseiling, rope ascending or rope traversing. It requires specialised training and extensive knowledge, as well as good physical fitness.  

We offer the following types of rope access training: 

  • recalling; 
  • in construction access with rope access components - for work at height where rope access is used to increase comfort or safety, such as working on sloping roofs; 
  • rope - basic - for simple work with ropes, e.g. when descending short distances; 
  • rope - extended - used for typical work with mountaineering methods; 

For smaller or larger groups of students, the price is set individually.  

Conditions of participation:  

  • No health problems to work at heights above 3 metres (no medical certificate required); 
  • Full age and minimum basic education. 

The rope training programme includes topics: 

Applying the necessary safety rules before starting the task
  • Organisation and legislation in work at height and its characteristics; 
  • Threats; 
  • Causes of typical accidents and their prevention; 
  • Employees' health and safety rights and obligations, liability for breaches;
