    Course Details

    IPAF Operator training courses equip delegates with the knowledge and practical skills to use mobile elevating work platforms efficiently and safely.

    This course is for anyone who uses, supervises, or manages the use of powered access equipment on-site. It covers mobile vertical (3a) and mobile boom (3a) MEWPs, including scissor lifts, self-propelled boom lifts, trailer mounted boom lifts, and aerial work platforms. IPAF courses are thorough and engaging sessions that use both theory and practical teaching and learning techniques.

    Suitable PPE is required on this course. You must have a face mask, safety gloves, MEWP harness, safety boots, and a His-Vis vest.
