The International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) is a not-for-profit organisation that promotes the safe and effective use of powered access equipment.

Their training programme is globally recognised and is delivered through a network of IPAF approved training centres. More than 170,000 operators are trained each year and successful trainees are awarded the PAL Card (Powered Access Licence). This is the most widely held and recognised, proof of quality-assured training for platform operators in the world.

When booking your IPAF course, check the course category that you are book for. If you are unsure, contact a member of our team who will be happy to advise you.

IPAF Training and PAL Cards

It is preferable but not mandatory, that delegates are in possession of a valid PAL Card. This is a ‘Powered Access Licence’ (PAL) for operating Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPs), Mast Climbing Work Platforms (MCWPs) or Construction Hoists (CHs).

To qualify for a PAL Card, operators must complete an IPAF training course and pass a test at an IPAF-accredited training centre.

IPAF add all cards and certificates to their ePAL App, you can download this from Apple App Store or Google Play.

IPAF training is provided third party through an IPAF Approved training centre
