IPAF Training Packs

Our IPAF training packs are available upon request.

IPAF Training pack

When you complete your IPAF training course with Charles Wilson, you will receive a PAL (Powered Access Licence) card that is valid for 5 years. You will also receive a safety guide, log book (on completion of an Operators course), and a certificate.

Your Log Book

All successful trainees receive an IPAF log book on completion of an Operators course, which will enable them to record their relevant experience. This could shorten the renewal process for experienced personnel; for a renewal course, candidates will need to have a current IPAF card and a log book with 60 entries (10 entries from the past 12 months).

Keep Training Up to Date

The IPAF Operator and Demonstrator cards are valid for 5 years, after which all cardholders will need to attend a course. All MEWP users should keep up to date with current legislation and equipment changes.

Working at Height Regulations: 2005

The regulations state:

“You must do all that is reasonably practicable to prevent anyone falling”.

All persons managing, planning, supervising or conducting Work at Height activities must be competent to do so.
