Ipaf Single Category Operator


This course ensures that delegates hold the knowledge and skills required for the safe and efficient operation of Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPs). The course is provided by IPAF (the International Powered Access Federation), one of the two training providers for Powered Access recognised by the UKCG (United Kingdom Contractors Group).

We offer IPAF training courses at centres across the UK, in-house at your premises, or at a local centre of your choosing. Please use our “Open Course” search function on the right hand side to quickly find training in your area, or call today to book an onsite instructor.
