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.

From our two training centres in Milton Keynes and the West Midlands, we also offer extensive PASMA training, covering legislation, regulations and guidance affecting working at height with mobile access towers.
