Course Content

Course Duration: 2 Days

This course is aimed at beginners or those with less experience as it offers a longer practical training session.

This accredited 2 day IPAF (International Powered Access Federation) training course is generally for those who wish to use a Mobile Elevated Working Platform. The working at height regulations state that all persons working and planning work at height activities need to be trained and gain levels of basic training working towards competency.

The International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) strongly recommends a full body harness with an adjustable lanyard used when working from a boom type MEWP. Training is vital as the repercussions of poorly fitted harnesses or incorrect product selection can be fatal.
