What is IPAF PAL+ training?
The PAL+ is an advanced qualification for MEWP (Mobile Elevation Working Platform) Operators. Larger machines are used in the training, for example a scissor lift with a minimum height of 10m, or a boom with a minimum of 15m working height. In addition, you will be taught how to manage challenging scenarios and terrain when operating MEWP equipment. The emphasis on the course is on practical training, with a compact theory session.
You will gain PAL+ for category 3a & 3b on this course.
