IPAF MEWP Operator eLearning



What is the IPAF MEWP Operator eLearning about?

IPAF's eLearning for MEWP operators is available for all MEWP categories (1a, 1b, 3a, 3b) and takes from around three hours to complete, depending on your level of MEWP knowledge. The eLearning module is divided into manageable sections that you can complete at your own pace. You can save and resume your training at any time.

You must also successfully complete a minimum of a half- day of practical training and testing before you are issued with a PAL Card as proof of your qualification of the IPAF Operator training.

So how does this work?

We are using facial recognition so a device with a camera is required. This could either be a laptop or a tablet for example. On successful completion you will receive an e-receipt, you will then need to complete the 4 hour practical session at one of our training centres.

  • Social distancing measures are in place so there is less interaction with other candidates
  • Cost saving compared to full centre course
