Not sure on the best section to post this in. Has anyone done there level 1 and got any good helpful advice? I’m potentially starting the course on Monday I’ve done the usual and watched YouTube. But always better to speak to people who have actually done the course. Cheers

I have done L1 twice now. You dont need to do any prep for the course, just go there ready to learn and they will show you every thing you need to pass test on last day.

Cheers that was my general thinking as it’s just the entry course. Got a funny feeling the learning will start as I’m swinging from the side of an oil rig

I read the title and immediately thought of Vic and Bob.

Yeah I've done level 1 it's fairly simple, I had to keep reminding myself to screw the carabiners shut (too used to 3 way ones) . Yeah big difference between doing the course inside a nice dry clean building and the real world out on site! Where you doing it?

Start Monday hopefully the course is at survivex then got the offshore survival the following week and hopefully away early/mid April. Seems strange how you use screw gates but the ASAP is a 3 way crab

I think someone told me you can use 3 way crabs for irata but screw gates are cheaper. What will you be doing on the ropes? Good luck with the course.
