Course Overview

Our Pre-Delivery Inspection Course delivers a minimum of 7 hours of instruction to a maximum of 6 delegates. This course aims at providing training to prepare and conduct a Pre-Delivery Inspection (INSP) on various types of MEWPS. Lifting equipment, including MEWPS must be inspected every six months by a competent person to ensure health and safety conditions are maintained. PDIs and in-service inspections are a vital part of any service plan, alongside the LOLER inspections to ensure MEWPs remain safe to use.

This course consists of a training room lecture, DVD presentation, written assessment and practical training and assessment.

This course is aimed at individuals such as rental company staff, service technicians/mechanics or depot based personnel who have held a valid IPAF PAL Card for a minimum of 6 months and have their corresponding log book documenting their training and experience to operate the categories for which they wish to obtain an IPAF PAL Card with the category of Pre-Delivery Inspection (INSP).

As the assembly and use of MEWPs can be physically demanding, users should be physically fit and in good health and should, generally, not have problems with eyesight or hearing, heart disease, high blood pressure, epilepsy, fear of heights/vertigo, giddiness/difficulty with balance, impaired limb function, alcohol or drug dependence or psychiatric illness.

At the end of the theory session delegates will take a written test. If they successfully pass, they will progress to the practical training and assessment where they will be required to carry out a risk assessment, and pre-delivery inspection on a range of MEWPs.

From 1st June 2021, Kentec Training will be registering all delegates through the IPAF Digital Card License Application (ePAL) system. This is inclusive within the course price.

For a physical copy of the PAL Card and A4 Certificate, this will incur an additional charge of £7.50 + vat per delegate. Please ensure this is requested prior to the course date, otherwise it will be treated as a replacement certificate at £30.00 + vat each.
