WHO IS THIS COURSE SUITABLE FOR?
This combined IPAF operator course is for the users of ‘Mobile Boom’ machines (commonly known as Cherry Pickers) and ‘Mobile Vertical’ machines (commonly known as Scissor Lifts).
The course duration is minimum seven hours, there will be a refreshment break mid morning and lunch break . We supply tea and coffee free of charge but would ask you to bring a light packed lunch. There are food retail outlets near the centre if you wish to purchase food.
The day starts with a theory session ending in a test paper, don’t worry we will make sure you have all the information to succeed in the test. Once you have passed your test and had lunch you will be given a full walk around explanation of the machines including all safety features and handling controls will be demonstrated. After some time familiarising with the machine you will be asked to complete a driving course to show your new skills.
