IPAF and MEWP Training Courses in Blackburn

Welcome to our Blackburn IPAF and MEWP training courses page. We specifically design our courses to give learners the knowledge and skills they need to operate powered equipment safely and lawfully. This includes equipment such as Mobile Elevated Work Platforms (MEWPs) and scaffold towers.

The International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) accredits all our IPAF courses. Upon successful completion of one of our courses, we will provide you with a Powered Access Licence (PAL card) which is valid for 5 years.

Working in the construction, maintenance or industrial industry means you may have to use Powered Access Equipment. To operate this machinery, operators must undergo powered access training and become qualified. This is to ensure that proper safety measures are in place, as per the law. Our training courses cover areas such as:

  • Pre-use inspections
  • Proper operation techniques
  • Emergency procedures

Our courses are taught by professional, qualified trainers. Our Blackburn courses include:

  • Mobile Vertical/Mobile Boom/Static Boom 3A 3B
  • Load Unload
  • IPAF Harness Use & Inspection
