FAQ’S

What is an IPAF qualification?

The International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) training programme is recognised all over the world. Developed by leading industry professionals, an IPAF qualification is one of the most valuable that you can hold. IPAF courses cover the following: mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) including boom, scissor, 1b, 3a and 3b categories of machine. We welcome so many delegates to our training centres and online courses, and a member of our team would be more than happy to advise you on which training course is the most suitable for you. Get in touch today, and they will answer your questions.

An IPAF course can vary from ½ day to 1 day in length, making them ideal for those with busy schedules. Here at Harrington Safety, we know that time is of the essence for a number of our delegates. You can rest assured that our courses are led by punctual tutors who will be able to cover all the necessary information with ease during the session(s). We do offer a range of different class times, as we try to accommodate those who aren’t available during working hours. We also offer E-Learning for those who prefer to train online.

Once you have completed your IPAF training, you will then be issued a certificate. This shows the level of training you have completed and will also state an expiry date. The IPAF courses are all valid for 5 years. Once this has passed, you will need to re-qualify in order to retain your card – something we’ve made so easy. We don’t recommend letting your certificate expire before you take the course again. Talk to us a little while before, and we will be able to help you continue to hold your certificate with no bumps in the road.

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.

Anonymous

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.

Georgi

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!!

Brendan

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.

Roy

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.

Neil

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.

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.

Daniel

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.

Alan F

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.

Michael

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

Laurean

Excellent, will strongly recommend
