IPAF Training in Birmingham

GTAccess has been providing powered access equipment and training for over 40 years, and has a wealth of knowledge and experience in instructing others in the safe use of these machines.

The International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) is a non-profit organisation that promotes the safe and effective use of mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) such as scissor lifts and boom lifts. To guarantee they have the skills necessary to reduce accidents and injuries, everyone using a MEWP must complete an IPAF training programme and get certified.

Thanks to our specialised IPAF training facility at the Birmingham NEC, GTAccess can guarantee that your workforce is fully trained and prepared for operating safely at heights. The IPAF PAL card is awarded to the learner following completion of a IPAF training course in Birmingham, and is recognised by all significant contracting organisations as well as being compliant with the Work at Height Regulations 2005 and PUWER Regulations 1998.

GTAccess offers courses that may be taken at times that are convenient for you, including at weekends or in the evenings. The amount of time spent in the training facility can be potentially decreased as some of the courses are also offered as e-learning options.
