The familiar IPAF’s Mobile Elevating Work Platform (MEWP) Operator training programme will be taking a giant step forward with the introduction of a new eLearning tool available from 1 February 2016 in the UK. After two years of research, testing and significant investment, the new learning materials are set to deliver flexibility and interactivity, with the same emphasis on practical training.
For the first time, trainees have an option of completing the theory module of the operator course via an interactive eLearning platform. They can complete the eLearning module online – anytime, anywhere, on most any device, at a pace to suit them.
Trainees opting to attend our training centre for the full 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 experienced instructor and fellow trainee operators in a classroom setting.
Whether trainees choose to complete the theory part via the eLearning module or the instructor-led course, all trainees must still pass a supervised theory assessment at one of our audited and approved training centres. Trainees will then proceed to the practical session and must pass a supervised practical assessment conducted by one of Kentec’s IPAF-certified instructor. Successful trainees will receive a Smart PAL Card (Powered Access Licence) and Certificate as proof of operator training.
