MCWP training covers the categories Mobile Operator, Demonstrator, Installer and Advanced Installer, each leading to the award of a PAL Card (Powered Access Licence).
Demonstrators are responsible for inducting users and ensuring that the equipment is used safely. They need to understand model-specific servicing and engineering details and the relevant legislative requirements, and be conversant with risk assessment guidance.
Installers, who actually install the platforms, have a special responsibility and additionally must have a detailed understanding of and experience in erection and dismantling procedures for the models they are working with.
Advanced installers are trained as managers or supervisors, with the ability to plan, to carry out a risk assessment of a job, to compile method statements and to configure special arrangements, including special tie and anchor specifications.
