IPAF unveils new-generation learning tools
New MEWP operator training materials set to deliver more flexibility and interactivity
IPAF’s mobile elevating work platform (MEWP) operator training programme will take a major step forward with a new generation of learning tools available in the UK from 1 February 2016.
After two years of research, testing and significant investment, IPAF say the new learning materials are set to deliver more flexibility and interactivity, but with the same emphasis on practical training.
For the first time, trainees will have the option of completing the theory part of the course via an interactive, state-of-the-art eLearning module. They can complete the eLearning module online – anytime, anywhere, on any device and at their own pace.
Trainees opting for the instructor-led theory course will also benefit from the same state-of-the-art graphics, animations and learning techniques. They will continue to interact with an instructor and fellow students in a classroom setting.
Whether they complete the theory part via the eLearning module or the instructor-led course, all trainees must still pass a supervised theory test at an audited and approved training centre. They will then proceed to the practical session and must pass a supervised practical test conducted by an IPAF-certified instructor.
Successful trainees will receive a Smart PAL Card (Powered Access Licence) as proof of operator training. For more information about IPAF operator eLearning, visit: www.ipaf.org/eLearning
