IPAF Aerial Access Equipment training

Upon successful completion of an IPAF course at AHS Ltd, you will receive a PAL (Powered Access Licence) card, certificate, an operator’s guide with safety hints, tips and guidelines and also an IPAF log book to record the various types of machines you operate throughout your work activities.

Your PAL card is valid for five years, giving instant recognition of your identity and the IPAF categories you are qualified to operate. It has become the main card scheme recognised on all main contractor sites for powered access equipment and is regularly audited by IPAF to maintain standards.

The Provisions and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER) states:
“You need to ensure that people using work equipment have received adequate training, instruction and information for the particular equipment” By having us provide the EXACT and SPECIFIC type of Training you seek, your continuing compliance with this Regulation will be both cost effective and ensure you are fully appraised and confident in the capability of your Staff and Equipment. We NEVER undertake Training without having first discussed personally exactly what your requirements are. This ensures you know what to expect, how much it will cost and helps us continue to deliver premium, bespoke, industry leading training and services. Contact Us to learn more about Training.
