IPAF Access Platform Operators
Anyone who operates any type of Mobile Elevated Work Platform (MEWP), such as scissor lifts, boom lifts, or trailer mounted or vehicle mounted boom lifts, should take this course to comply with the duties placed upon employers and employees by law. The International Powered Access Federation licence is recognised all over the world, and can be endorsed with different categories of MEWP.

Candidates will take a written test, and following practical training also take a practical assessment. 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. £185.00 plus VAT per person for this one day course. This price is inclusive of training for a single category of MEWP, the certification and licence issue fee.
