As well as providing access machinery we also offer a complete and comprehensive range of IPAF training programs. Our courses are a mix of theory and practical training and are designed to ensure operators can safely and competently drive, position and manoeuvre scissor lifts, cherry pickers or trailer mounted platforms.

It is essential that all operators are fully trained, and essential that companies utilising access lifts satisfy the criteria laid out in both the EC and Safety at Work legislation. Our IPAF training courses ensure you and your employees are able to safely operate your access equipment, and successful trainees receive a PAL (Powered Access License) card, safety guide, log book and a certificate. PAL cards are valid for 5 years and cover the IPAF categories you're qualified to operate.
