IPAF Training Explained

If you are thinking about using, or currently operating, mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPS) you need to consider your responsibilities in respect of the health and safety of yourself and those working with you. If you have already had previous IPAF training, and your certificate has expired then a training renewal is required. Your IPAF licence lasts for 5 years but in order to do the refresher your log book must be kept up to date. Do not worry, however, if your log book is not up to date or if you have never had previous training as open courses are run on a weekly basis in Glasgow. Novices and inexperienced operators are more than welcome to attend the one-day course and with a 98% pass rate you can feel confident when you book an IPAF training course with BOSS Training.

There are various categories of powered access machines. Collectively these machines are known as MEWPs but it is worth knowing the following IPAF categories:

  • 1a - Static Vertical
  • 1b - Static Boom
  • 3a - Mobile Vertical
  • 3b - Mobile Boom

In addition to operator training on the above categories (please note we usually limit the number of categories to 2 per course) the following IPAF accredited courses are also available in Glasgow:

  • PAV Training (Push Around Vertical)
  • MEWPs for Managers
  • Safety Harness
