IPAF PAL+ is an additional one day of category-specific training aimed at operators working in higher risk or challenging environments. Delivered by 2 Cousins, IPAF PAL+ includes a short, compact theory session and focuses on practical training, using large machines such as a scissor lift with a minimum of 10m working height and a boom with a minimum of 15m working height. Upon successful completion of the theory test, practical test and interview, operators will have the relevant categories added to their Powered Access License (PAL) card.
IPAF PAL+ training is open to operators who hold an existing PAL Card qualification in the relevant category.
Machine categories include:
- Static Vertical (1a+)
- Static Boom (1b+)
- Mobile Vertical (3a+)
- Mobile Boom (3b+)
Delegates on these courses will gain an understanding of:
- the importance of attitude and behaviour to working at height,
- checking risk assessments against the actual site,
- the implications of siting the machine in different positions, and
- driving and manoeuvring the MEWP safely
