About the IPAF and PASMA Combined Course

When it comes to IPAF and PASMA, we often get asked if the IPAF Operator and PASMA Towers for Users course can be completed in 1 day. Having multiple health and safety qualifications to your name is a great way to boost your skills, along with your attractiveness to employers. If you are looking to undertake IPAF training in the 3a & 3b categories, along with PASMA Towers for Users, this combined course could be a great option for you.

Obtaining both of these qualifications in one day will allow you to condense your learning and take a much quicker route to certification. You’ll be able to get to work using mobile elevated work platforms and mobile access towers as soon as you successfully complete the course, so it’s a really convenient choice.


What Does the IPAF & PASMA Combined Course Cover?

You can expect 1 full day evenly split between IPAF 3a & 3b Categories and PASMA Towers for Users. The IPAF 3a training course covers how to operate vertical mobile elevated work platforms such as scissor lifts. Meanwhile, the IPAF 3b course covers the boom mobile elevated work platforms which are also known as cherry picker.

The PASMA Towers for users training course will teach operators how to safely assemble, dismantle and inspect mobile access towers and work in full accordance with all relevant health and safety regulations.

We know that taking time away from work to complete training can be challenging and costly which is why completing the theory online for both the IPAF and PASMA training is so convenient. It means you can achieve both qualifications with just one day spent at the training centre. Once you have booked your practical training date, you will be issued your online IPAF and PASMA theory to complete in the comfort of your home. You have 24/7 access to both theories meaning you really can fit it in around your schedule. Once the online theory has been completed, you or your team members will join us at our training centre on your booked date to undergo the practical part of both their IPAF and PASMA training on the same day.

For the IPAF training, the full theory and multiple-choice test is completed and passed online before you attend the centre, meaning there is no IPAF theory test on the practical training day. The PASMA online theory is slightly different in respect of the theory test. The online theory is completed before the practical training day however a multiple-choice test is provided to you to sit on the practical training day. This PASMA test will need to be passed before sitting the PASMA practical training.

We are a fully accredited IPAF and PASMA training provider meaning you can be sure that your training will adhere to all current best practices and align fully with IPAF and PASMA’s course objectives. For the practical part of your training, we ask that you wear a high-vis vest along with safety footwear and a hard hat.

Upon completion of this module of the course, your licences will be processed with the accrediting bodies and you’ll receive an IPAF Powered Access Licence (PAL) and PASMA card and certificate.

We started using Harrington Safety in 2021, the staff are very helpful and professional and go above and beyond to help with last minute requests.

The feedback from our operational team is that training is professional and informative.


Very well structured, managed and informative course provided by both professional and personable staff. The theory and practical tuition that I received put me in good stead to go straight in and operate a 10 ton cherry picker safely and with confidence, both essential factors when using such equipment. I would recommend Harrington Safety Ltd to anyone needing not just to get qualified, but to also feel comfortable operating MEWP systems for their trade.


Ryan was really good instructor, he made sure we understood the theory part of the course and gave us enough time to practice with the machines, so we felt confident before move on to the test. Excellent training!!


Phenomenal training, Ryan’s ability to teach and ensure I fully understood each module in both theory and practical before moving on has left me confident in transferring these skills to the work place.


To start with, this course was outstanding. I've been on a lot of training courses over the years and some are good and some are boring and you can't wait to leave. This course was engaging, the instructor included all students. There was no useless information everything was current and valid no fluff or fillers if you like. The practical was straight to the point and spot on. All in all a good experience and brilliantly put together training course. Top instructors and staff. Highly recommended training facility.


Very good presentation by Gary and very helpful when answering questions.


Harrington safety will be my number one go to for any courses I need to do. I completed my IPAF 3A and 3B and passed 1st time. They let you do the eLearning at home that helps me because of my current position at work. Thank you Paul for a smooth and clear instruction of both the boom and scissor vehicles and Charlie for getting onto IPAF to get my online card quicker, will definitely recommend.


Paul and Charlie were both a pleasure to deal with - very professional, helpful and friendly. Great service and would highly recommend to all. Many thanks.


A well run professional course. Delivered concisely and practically.


First time using Harrington Safety and I found them to be very professional.

The booking process was easy, their responses to any questions was nothing short of instant and their follow up was there!

Thank you Harrington, and I will definitely use you again and advise others to do so.


My certificate and my card arrived today. Thanks for your help, and wonderful attitude. I have many certificates, but your centre is the best. For my next certificate I will be calling you! Thanks.

Great teacher, would recommend his courses and will come back to him in future.

Paul was a very good teacher. Easy to understand and helped me when needed. I felt comfortable in his classroom and confident to ask questions. When friends ask, I will recommend.

Ray H

Very knowledgable and passionate tutor

When arriving, I was nervous and unsure of my abilities. The trainer made me feel at ease as soon as I came in. If I needed to ask questions I did, and they were answered clearly and in a way I understood. The practical work was challenging but my trainer guided me through and made it as interesting as possible. Will definitely be recommending this company.


The training was perfectly delivered. I will be quite happy to take my training here again


Excellent, will strongly recommend


Nice people to deal with. Easy website to navigate. Variety of training needs can be met in Covid secure training environment.


Well managed training. The trainers also knew their stuff and answered any questions raised on the course.


Such an amazing company! I couldn't recommend them highly enough for all of your health and safety training within the construction industry.
