IPAF

Our Training is primarily housed within our training centre based in the heart of North-West London.

Course Overview

  • Our IPAF Operator (3A & 3B) Course delivers a minimum of 7 hours of instruction on Saturday and is designed to instruct up to a maximum ratio of 4 delegates per instructor, providing training to prepare and safely operate Mobile Vertical (Scissorlift) and Mobile Boom (Cherrypicker) in the workplace.
  • The IPAF (International Powered Access Federation) certification is an internationally recognised qualification for use of such machinery. More than 100,000 operators are trained each year through a worldwide network of training centers. As an approved training center, we are audited by IPAF annually. Training generally lasts one to two days and is a mixture of theory and practice.

The course will take place every Saturday

  • This course consists of an instructor led training room presentation, written assessment, practical training and assessment.
QUALIFICATION

Operatives will gain understanding of current relevant legislation and regulations, accident prevention & control, needs regarding personnel protection, the need to refer to machine operating manuals and the driving/manoeuvring of MEWPs safely in order to position and carry out the required tasks in a correct and proper manner.

An initial pre-course assessment takes place in the form of a multiple choice examination at the beginning of the day; intended to allow the instructor to gauge the knowledge and understanding of each operative before course commencement. At the end of the theory session, operatives will take a short multiple choice test. If operatives successfully pass the test, they will then move on to the practical training and assessment.

Those who successful complete both theory and practical sessions will receive an IPAF Certificate and PAL Card that are valid for a period of 5 years. Successful operatives will gain an understanding of current legislation and best practice on a range of MEWPs; including carrying out a pre-use inspection and safe operation in line with approved methods and the manufacturer’s instructions. The course agenda includes:

  • Introduction to IPAF and MEWPs
  • Pre-theory test

  • Structural parts identified
  • Pre-use inspection/handover requirements
