AWC Interview

Kiril- I have done variety of things that require rope access - building envelop inspections and repair, billboard installation, wind turbine maintenance. This all started at the age of 16.  I was interested in learning about rope access (hanging on ropes ). One day I spent a few hours watching thru my dad’s binoculars a guy working on the building next door. I learned a lot from that moment and thought it was very fascinating. I went out and bought my own equipment. With a couple of pointers from a person with previous experience I began hanging on the side of the building I lived in (9 stories high). Never really had any real training.
