IPAF Training Courses: The International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) promotes the safe and effective use of powered access on a worldwide basis. The IPAF training programme for platform operators conforms to ISO 18878 and consists of a range of IPAF courses dedicated to the training of individuals who will be using powered access equipment. Successful trainees are awarded the PAL Card (Powered Access Licence), which is a recognised proof of training for platform operators. The PAL Card is valid for five years; after this time, individuals must revisit their IPAF training by undertaking another IPAF course relevant to their job.
