Date: Tue 24th March 2020

Courses available are MEWP Operator eLearning theory training course and MEWPs for Managers eLearning training course.


MEWP Operator eLearning 

IPAF’s eLearning for MEWP operators is available for all MEWP categories (1a, 1b, 3a, 3b) and takes around three hours to complete. The eLearning is broken down into manageable sections that candidates can complete at their own pace and can save and resume training at any time. MEWP operator eLearning does not replace practical training. Trainees who complete the online module must still pass a supervised theory test within 45 days*, at an IPAF-approved training centre and must successfully complete a minimum half-day of practical training and testing before qualifying for and being issued with a PAL Card as proof of success operator training. 

*Due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, trainees currently have 90 days from the date of completing theory eLearning module to attend an IPAF-approved training centre in order to take their theory test and practical training module. This period will be reviewed as the situation develops. 


MEWPs for Managers eLearning 

IPAFs MEWPs for Managers training course covers what managers need to know for safe and effective use of MEWPs on site, including planning the job, conducting a risk assessment, selecting the right equipment for optimum cost-efficiency and mitigating all possible risks. 

This course has been designed to be completed solely on eLearning, on compatible PCs and tablet devices. The course takes six to eight hours to complete and is broken down into manageable sections that you can complete at your own pace and can save and resume your training at any time.
