Our Team

Adam Long

Adam Long

Director

One of the most experienced trainers in the industry, Adam previously worked freelance for most of the UK’s top rope access training providers. Having started his career with a landmark research contract for the HSE, he has since delivered training for situations as diverse as cable car rescue, backstage at the Royal Opera House and for the Royal Navy’s Board and Search school, HMS Raleigh. Adam sits on IRATA's training committee and recently led a complete rewrite of their rope access training syllabus. In his spare time, Adam climbs to a high standard and has won acclaim as a photographer.

Adrian Jebb

Adrian Jebb

Director

From desert towers to North sea oil rigs, Aide has travelled the world with his Level 3 ticket and supervised just about every kind of work out there. Straight out of school, he cut his teeth onshore air-sealing supermarkets and installing safety nets, before gaining his Level 3 aged only twenty-two. He then moved on to more long term and high profile contracts refurbishing cooling towers and flare stacks. After a spell offshore, his expanding family prompted him to settle down, and after gaining his trainer qualification he teamed up with Adam to set up Access Techniques, and became an IRATA assessor. Mountain sports are in the genes in the Jebb family, and Aide is no exception, not only climbing hard but also a competitive fell-runner and cyclist.
