Next Generation Learning Tools for IPAF's UK Operator Training Program | Construction News


In February, a new generation of learning tools will be available for IPAF’s mobile elevating work platform (MEWP) operator training program in the UK. Trainees will now have the option of completing the theory part of the course via an interactive, state-of-the-art eLearning module. They can complete the eLearning module online – anytime, anywhere, on any device, at their own pace.

Trainees opting for the instructor-led theory course will benefit from the same state-of-the-art graphics, animations. and learning techniques. They will continue to interact with an instructor and fellow students in a classroom setting.

Whether they complete the theory part via the eLearning module or the instructor-led course, all trainees must still pass a supervised theory test at an audited and approved training center. Trainees will then proceed to the practical session and must pass a supervised practical test conducted by an IPAF-certified instructor. Successful trainees will receive a Smart PAL Card (Powered Access Licence) as proof of operator training.
