IPAF has successfully tested a new eLearning module as part of its established AWPT 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 AWPT operator course, which is managed by American Work Platform Training, IPAF’s US subsidiary.
Trainees who complete the online session must still pass a supervised theory test at an AWPT-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 AWPT operator training.
