IPAF Training

In the construction industry, it’s especially important to ensure that, when you’re working on a project, all of your team is sufficiently qualified to use the various equipment needed. One good example of this is the use of powered access equipment, which requires a level of training sufficient to receive a Powered Access Licence.

In order to qualify, though, you need to work with a team that is accredited and capable of legally certifying you and your team. As such, IPAF, the International Powered Access Federation has been set up as a non-profit organisation by a group of companies with the aim of maintaining a high quality workforce across carious countries within the construction industry.

IPAF, as an educational group, meets ISO 18878, which allows it to teach and train workers across the world in a high level of powered access usage; IPAF are also therefore certified to give out PAL qualifications, which are valid for five years.

Of course, time must also be considered when it comes to qualifying your team. With this taken into consideration, the IPAF training program lasts two days, which is available in a variety of training centres throughout the globe, including several in the UK.

However, if you’re putting off training on the basis that you won’t be working primarily with powered access equipment, it could still be in your interest to take a short, IPAF training course. This is because having a PAL card is widely recognised across the world as not only a certification in using powered equipment, but also as a level of competency when working in the construction industry.

So, when it comes to making sure that your team is sufficiently certified to work on-site, when using a variety of both powered and standard access equipment, working with IPAF has many advantages.
