Course Details

Product number: SW10359

This course provides advanced training for experienced IPAF MEWP Operators to increase their knowledge and understanding of working in high risk and challenging environments such as steelwork, confined overhead spaces or challenging terrain. 

Please view the who should attend tab to ensure you meet the qualification/experience requirements prior to attendance on this course. 

Completing the e-learning alone does not qualify you as an operator; industry standards require both the knowledge gained in the e-learning theory session and assessed operation of the equipment to demonstrate proficiency. Once you have completed the e-learning, you must also complete the practical assessment and testing at one of our HSS Training IPAF-Approved centres to obtain a PAL Card (Powered Access Licensed-Registration).

To take advantage of this, please follow the below steps:

  1. Complete the theory e-learning module which can be done anytime, anywhere and on any device, at a pace which suits the individual delegate.
    (Compatible with PCs, Macs, tablets and smartphones on any modern internet browser)
  2. Once you have completed the e-learning and successfully passed, please contact us again to book your practical training at one of our IPAF-approved centres - to do this you will need your unique reference number which will be shown on your ‘receipt of completion’ generated at the end of your e-learning.
    Delegates are required to attend an HSS Training IPAF-approved training centre within 90 days of completing the e-learning module to sit their theory exam and undertake practical training and assessment (Due to Covid-19 this has been temporarily increased this to 90 days).
  3. You will need to bring a copy of your ‘receipt of completion’ to the course for the trainer to verify, without this you will be refused entry.
  4. Upon entry to the course, you will be asked to complete an open book multiple choice questionnaire which is based on the knowledge gained from the e-learning, this will be followed by a practical training and assessment session lasting a minimum of 4 hours, however this is dependent upon knowledge and experience of using MEWPs.
