What is IPAF Training?

The International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) promotes the safe and effective use of powered access equipment worldwide – through providing technical advice and information; through influencing and interpreting legislation and standards; and through safety initiatives and training programmes.

IPAF is a not-for-profit organisation owned by its members, which include manufacturers, rental companies, distributors, contractors and users. IPAF members operate a majority of the MEWP rental fleet worldwide and manufacture about 85% of platforms on the market.

IPAF certification is an internationally recognised qualification for use of powered access machinery. More than 100,000 operators are trained each year through a worldwide network of IPAF training providers. The duration of IPAF training courses are generally one to two days and are a mixture of theory and practice.
