Frequently Asked Questions


  • You will need to bring your PPE, boots, hard hat, hi viz and if doing a boom category, a full body harness and short adjustable lanyard. All available to purchase on the day.

The International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) provides training courses that cover the safe use of MEWPs. The training courses are designed to help operators understand the risks associated with operating MEWPs and how to minimize them. The courses also cover the legal requirements for operating MEWPs and the different types of MEWPs available.

Your PAL Card lasts for five years. All PAL Cards are issued digitally and accessed via ePAL, IPAF’s free mobile phone app. (Printed PAL Cards are available if required.)
