Founded in 2002 by Leigh Greenwood, 5th Point was the first company in New South Wales to attain IRATA International Membership.
As an IRATA International Member Company, we train the only internationally recognised industrial rope access qualification (IRATA). IRATA is recognised as the world’s leading authority on industrial rope access; the methodology created by the association has an unrivalled safety record.
Over the past two decades, 5th Point has continued to grow and develop, becoming the leading IRATA International training company in Australasia.
In 2008, 5th Point began offering various nationally recognised units of competency through partnerships with other Registered Training Organisations (RTO’s). Committed to providing the highest quality of training and course material, over time, 5th Point noted various opportunities for improvement, and by 2015, 5th Point had gained registration as an RTO.
Becoming an RTO enabled us to develop our courses with a strong focus to hands-on and task-orientated learning, specific to the working at heights and industrial rope access sectors; reinforcing theory through practical application.
Supplementary to the practical learning, these courses provide workers and/or persons conducting business or undertaking (PCBUs) with a greater understanding of the legal requirements for working at height within Australia.
