IPAF stand for International Powered Access Federation.
The course will allow me to operate a scissor lift and a Boom lift
It was only a one day course with half the day spent in the classroom learning the different types of lifts and rules and H&S followed by a multiply choose exam.
The afternoon was spent in the workshop where we were shown how to operate the 2 types of machines, we then had to drive both of the machines over an set out obstacle course where we had to avoid cones and perform various high level tasks without gaining to many penalty points.
Well I'm happy to say that I gained a pass and now hold a IPAF operators licence.
