MEWP / Hydraulic Work Platform Operator Training This International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) operator training course is for anyone who operates category 3a and 3b hydraulic work platforms (see our article on IPAF categories here).
If you are unsure that these are the right categories for you, or you require training on different categories, please call us on 0333 666 1881.
Included in the training cost are:
The following PPE is required for the IPAF Operator Course:
We therefore recommend that you opt to include our harness safety kit(s) when you book the course; if you do, the kits will cost just £49.95 + VAT (for equipment valued at £85!). This will ensure that you are correctly equipped for the course, and for operating MEWPs after the successful completion of your training.
Please note: The kit includes the items listed above, with the exception of safety footwear that you must provide yourself on the day.
If you do not opt to include the kit(s) when booking the course, you will need to bring your own PPE (if you don't have a suitable harness/lanyard we can loan you one).
Purchasing the safety harness kit from us will also ensure that you are notified when the formal inspection of the harness is required so that you will not be prevented from going on-site. Details of our harness inspection services can be view here.
