The course content is quite substantial and covers the following areas::

  • Types of Rope Construction
  • Socket and Rope Terminations Used
  • Properties of Wirelock Resin
  • Standard BS.EN.13411-4
  • Method and Step by Step Socketing Procedure.


Each candidate will be required to complete a written and practical assessment which will involve work of a physical nature. As such it is their employers’ responsibility to ensure that they have the required medical fitness. Depending on course location and the facilities available, the practical assessment may include the proof load testing or destruction testing of rope terminations. If successful, a certificate will be issued. This will help the Employer to address certain legal requirements by being able to demonstrate employee competency. A detailed course handout is also provided for future reference.
