IPAF Access Platform Operators Course (e-learning)

IPAF's enhanced eLearning module is part of its full training programme for mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs). The eLearning module delivers flexibility and interactive tools, with the same emphasis on practical training.

Together with supervised written and practical testing of operator skills, the eLearning module can lead to a PAL Card (Powered Access Licence) which proves that the operator has successfully completed the training and is able to operate MEWPs safely.

  • Interactive
  • Engages trainees with games, quizzes, videos and simulations

Operator eLearning does not replace practical training. Trainees who complete the online session must still pass a supervised theory test and practical our training centre. 

Candidates can complete the e-learning in a period of 45 days before attending for the test and practical training. When booking this course candidates will be issued with a log-in to complete the e-learning modules.

Successful candidates will receive a certificate issued by IPAF and a photo I.D. IPAF licence showing the category or categories of MEWP on which they have been trained. The licence is internationally accepted.
