By the end of the course the delegates will be able to competently and safely operate the machine in correct accordance with the manufacturers’ instructions and accepted good practice. They will also be able to correctly and securely site and adjust the machine for the required task, and carry out routine services. Every successful learner will also have a thorough understanding of their responsibilities under current and relevant health and safety legislation.
We offer 3a, 3b, 1b IPAF MEWP categories, and ensure every successful candidate will be issued with an IPAF Trained Operators Card and certificate evidencing that they have passed the Full IPAF (Theory and Practical) Technical Test.
