IPAF has successfully tested a new eLearning module as part of its established training programme for US operators of aerial work platforms (AWPs). The eLearning module has been developed and tested with IPAF member NES Rentals.
The eLearning module is only available in the US and Canada to trainees who take the IPAF operator course.
Trainees who complete the online session must still pass a supervised theory test at an IPAF-approved training centre and must successfully complete a half-day of practical training and testing before being issued with a PAL Card (Powered Access Licence) as proof of successfully completed IPAF operator training.
