International Powered Access Federation Courses

The International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) promotes the safe and effective use of powered access worldwide. Set up in 1983, IPAF is a not-for-profit members' organisation that represents the interests of manufacturers, distributors, users, and rental and training companies.

The IPAF training programme for platform operators is certified by TUV as conforming to ISO 18878. More than 70,000 operators are trained each year through a worldwide network of over 300 training centres. Successful trainees are awarded the PAL Card (Powered Access Licence); the most widely held and recognised proof of training for platform operators.

The PAL Card is valid for five years. It shows the date on which the holder was assessed and the expiry date by which re-training would be needed. Additionally it also shows the types of equipment that the holder has been trained to operate and the level to which the holder has been trained, e.g. operator, demonstrator and instructor. It has security features including a holographic logo and the holder's photograph and signature to prevent misuse.

All successful trainees also receive:

  • A log book to record their working experience.
  • A pocket sized publication, "IPAF Operators' Safety Guide for Mobile Elevating Work Platforms"
