The International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) has demonstrated its next generation of learning tools for mobile elevating work platform (MEWP) users.

The tools were showcased to a selection of IPAF-certified instructors at the federation’s 2016 series of professional development seminars (PDS), which were attended by more than 680 professionals from 23 countries.

The latest learning tools include an eLearning theory module and an instructor-led theory course, featuring graphics, animations, and updated educational techniques.

Commenting on the 2016 PDS event, IPAF CEO Tim Whiteman said: “For almost 150,000 people every year, IPAF instructors are the face of IPAF. Their hard work and enduring commitment have made this voluntary training programme the global success that it is today.

“We aim to support our instructors by building on their skills and professionalism, and providing them with innovative and top-class learning tools,” he added.

IPAF’s annual PDS event enables instructors to remain up-to-date with legislation and training, and gain Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points required to achieve instructor status.

Training from IPAF-approved centres includes operator courses necessary for the issuance of Powered Access Learning (PAL) Cards. Last year, IPAF instructors trained more than 145,000 people – an increase of 5.6% compared to 2014.
