IPAF Operator Course - 1B

This IPAF Operator Course delivers a minimum of 7 hours of both theory and practical instruction and assessment for candidates on how to safely operate, select and carry out pre-use inspection on MEWP Category 1B (Static Boom – Vehicle, Trailer or Track Mounted Boom) in the workplace.

The IPAF (International Powered Access Federation) certification is an internationally recognised qualification for use of such machinery.
