IPAF Training Bromsgrove

Thanks to more than 40 years of experience in the provision of top-of-the-line powered access equipment, GTAccess can offer a range of International Powered Access Federation (IPAF)-certified training courses.  

IPAF training courses are mandatory for anyone who works with a mobile elevating work platform (MEWP), including scissor lifts, boom lifts and more, and are designed to keep operatives safe and prevent workplace accidents.  

With our specialised site offering IPAF training in Bromsgrove, GTAccess can guarantee your crew has received all necessary training for operating safely at heights. An IPAF powered access licence (PAL) card is given to the learner upon completion of an IPAF training course and is accepted by all major contracting organisations, complying with the Work at Height Regulations 2005 and the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER) Regulations 1998. 

Our courses can be taken at convenient times, such as at weekends or in the evenings. Some of the courses are also available as e-learning options, reducing the amount of time spent in our training facility.
