IPAF's new, enhanced eLearning module is part of its full training programme for US and Canadian operators of aerial work platforms (AWPs), also known as mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs). The eLearning module delivers flexibility and interactive tools, with the same emphasis on practical training.
Together with supervised written and practical testing of operator skills, the eLearning module can lead to a PAL Card (Powered Access Licence) which proves that the operator has successfully completed the training and is able to operate AWPs safely.
- Trainees complete the theory part anytime, anywhere, on any device, at their own pace
- Engages trainees with games, quizzes, videos and simulations
Operator eLearning does not replace practical training. Trainees who complete the online session must still pass a supervised theory test at an IPAF-approved training centre and must successfully complete a minimum half-day of practical training and testing before being issued a PAL Card as proof of successfully completed operator training.
IPAF’s operator eLearning is being rolled out internationally – following the launch in the US and Canada, it will be launched in Benelux and in the UK in 2016. IPAF eLearning will soon be available in several languages.
