IPAF Training Courses in Essex

Thanks to our dedicated IPAF training facility in Brentwood, Essex, GTAccess can make sure that everyone on your team receives the essential IPAF training for your Essex location and is fully prepared for safe operations at height. The IPAF PAL card, which is recognised by all contracting firms, is awarded to learners who complete an IPAF training course.

The course complies with the Work at Height Regulations, 2005, and the PUWER Regulations, 1998, and the contractors must hold an IPAF PAL card as a requirement of employment and a safety measure to operate MEWPs on-site. Through GTAccess, your Essex team can enrol in an IPAF training course at a time that is convenient for you, including some weekend and evening possibilities, in Essex. The availability of some courses, or portions of them, as an e-learning option can reduce the time spent on the training site. 

GTAccess has been in business for almost 40 years, so it can offer a wealth of knowledge and expertise in instructing others on how to utilise powered access equipment efficiently and safely. The International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) recommends that telehandlers and cherry pickers, as well as other mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs), be used effectively and safely. To guarantee they have the skills and knowledge to lower the risks of accidents and injuries, every individual using a MEWP must successfully complete an IPAF training course and obtain certification.
