What is IPAF Training?

An IPAF training course focuses on teaching people how to operate powered equipment, such as mobile elevating work platforms, cherry pickers, or scissor lifts. This is done under the International Powered Access Federation, which is a not-for-profit organisation that supports the safe and effective use of powered access machinery.

Many workplaces require IPAF training, and those who pass their IPAF training courses qualify with a PAL card. This indicates that they can legally and safely operate machinery such as scissor lifts, mobile booms, and boom lifts (3a 3b) which is required in a range of tasks.

To qualify for your PAL card and legally be qualified to handle mobile elevating work platforms, you need to work with an accredited and licenced operator training programme.

IPAF Training Benefits

Multiple benefits can come from partaking in IPAF training courses.

As an accredited IPAF training facility, we can provide several benefits with our IPAF training courses, such as:

  • Ensures Safe Operation of Machinery

The purpose of every IPAF course is to ensure that operators can safely manage and control the mobile elevating work platforms required on site. Each of our IPAF operator training courses focuses on specific types of machinery, such as scissor lift training which teaches people how to safely manage a scissor lift and the health and safety required with this.

  • Ensures Correct and Safe Assembly of Working Platforms

Not only does our training help ensure that people can operate the working platforms, but that these are also set up correctly. This is vital for the safety of not only the operator but also everyone on-site who may be impacted by the machinery in some way.

This is why all the IPAF courses we offer include full health and safety training, such as teaching how to use the safety harness for each platform and training related to setting up a solid platform.

  • Reduces Work Site Hazards

With high-quality theory training as well as physical IPAF training courses, hazards on the work site are reduced significantly. When operators can correctly control and manage each working platform, as well as understand how to set them up, the risk of hazards is significantly reduced.

As every training course also includes health and safety, such as how to set up and use the safety harness on a platform, qualified operators also know how to handle any arising hazards.

  • Provides Essential Skills For Safe Worksites

IPAF training courses are a great tool to further your career and help operators become more skilled at their work. With each IPAF course, you can become qualified to handle all kinds of machinery and ensure maximum safety on each work site.

This is why we also provide manager training as well as operator training courses.
