Delegates book in for Ipaf E-Learning and complete the online theory modules at home / work.
Ipaf E-learning utilises sophisticated facial recognition across the online training and evaluation session to ensure the candidates identity and to prevent any attempt to obtain the qualification through fraudulent means.
The courses can only be run on tablets and computers that have a camera.
It usually takes approx. 3 hours and can be completed over a period of time or all at once. When the online theory has been successfully completed delegates attend our centre for a supervised theory test and practical session.
Practical assessment courses are run on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at our Newcastle Centre.
Cost for 2 categories - £175 pp + vat.
Cost for 3 categories - £215 pp + vat.
This course is designed for anyone wishing to gain a 'PAL' card (Powered Access Licence) that provides proof that you have undergone and completed IPAF training on Mobile Elevated Working Platforms or MEWPs as they also are known.
The Work at Height Regulations require MEWP operators to be competent with proper and adequate training in the use of the specific machine.
The aim of the course is to ensure the operator is trained to a high level of competence with understanding and knowledge regarding the safe and correct use of the MEWP and gaining a PAL card.
Basic knowledge and experience is required for this course and absolute beginners may need a 2 day course.
IPAF 2 Day Novice Operator Course - £295 pp + vat
This 2 day course is aimed at delegates who have either never operated a scissor lift or boom or who may feel nervous and require extra guidance and tuition. Delegates will be given more in depth knowledge and support as well as extra practice time. The course can extend up to 2 full days to develop your skills.
Our experienced instructors are aware that not everyone can achieve the licence in 1 day and can give you the time you need to pass the tests.
Also included in the price is a free resit if you fail either of the practical assessments.
