Below are the four IPAF accredited courses on offer from Eagle Platforms.
IPAF SAFETY HARNESS TRAINING COURSE - Half day course (4 hours)
The IPAF Safety Harness course is absolutely vital for anyone who regularly uses safety harnesses while working on MEWPs. The course benefits from a theory and practical training blend that ensures delegates leave well equipped to confront their daily duties safely and expertly and are sure on the best practice when it comes to wearing and maintaining their safety harnesses.
IPAF MEWPS FOR MANAGERS COURSE - Full day course (7 hours)
This is a training module designed for those who are charged with managing a crew who work at height and are fully responsible for the health and safety of their charges. The course is entirely classroom based and will give a great grounding for ensuring safety in the workplace.
IPAF PAV TRAINING - Half day course (4 hours)
The IPAF PAV (Push Along Vertical) Course delivers a blend of classroom and practical training as well as assessment on how best to safely operate, select and undertake pre-use inspection of Push Around Vertical Personnel Lifts (PAVs).
Modules 3A & 3B (Scissor lift and boom course)
Module 3A involves training in Scissor lifts and vertical personnel platforms (mobile), while 3B is a training module that delivers best practice in using self-propelled booms. Both modules come together to help delegates to best use, inspect and select MEWPs and plan routes before embarking on a job.
IPAF PAL+ (Modules 3A+ & 3B)
PAL+ courses involve an optional, additional one day of category-specific training that is explicitly aimed at operators working in higher risk or more challenging environments.
PAL+ courses involve a mix of theory and practice and incorporate working in confined spaces and challenging terrain. To complete the course delegates will carry out a theory test, a practical test and an interview.

Short for the International Powered Access Federation, IPAF is a body responsible for ensuring that safe and effective implementation of powered access is carried out worldwide. IPAF has been non-profit since 1983 and uses its resources to represent the interests of everyone involved in powered access, whether they are distributors, hirers, training companies, manufacturers or end users. Over the years IPAF has played a fundamental role in the promotion of design improvements, safety and testing overhauls and other procedures that are now industry standards.
IPAF Training: The Fundamentals
IPAF is not a training provider, but rather an approver of training. This means that all of the courses and modules provided by Eagle Platforms are subject to rigorous inspection and regular audits.
IPAF training courses are all fine-tuned after wide-reaching research involving leading industry figures and are certified by TÜV. This means that all courses adhere to the industry standards that relate to MEWP and operator training.
What happens when I complete my training?
After successfully completing IPAF training, delegates will receive the relevant PAL (Powered Access Licence) card and a certificate. The card, which will bear your photograph is very useful on site and can be verified by employers by calling IPAF.
