Our one day IPAF Scissor & Boom Operator course instructs how to prepare and safely use various types of access platforms, including scissor lifts & cherry pickers. The course cost includes all IPAF registration fees.

On successful completion of the course you’ll be issued with an IPAF Operators license that is valid for five years.
