IPAF Push Around Vertical (PAV) Training Course – ½ Day Training Course

Looking for the IPAF PAV training London delegates recommend? Then you have come to just the right place. We are Harrington Safety, and we are a trusted provider of IPAF push-around vertical PAV operator tuition not just in the capital, but nationwide. We have helped many delegates to successfully pass the course, and we can’t wait to add you to that list.

So, what are PAVs? Well, these are machines that are manually pushed along in the lowered position – and are then raised using manual or battery power. Their small size means that they are found on a wide range of sites. As a result, more and more construction industry professionals need to know how to operate them safely.

Our popular IPAF training PAV course is ½ day long, making it really easy to fit into your schedule. We are really proud of the service we are able to offer, and ensure that our IPAF PAV training is tailored to each delegate’s specific needs.

What you can expect from our course

  • The IPAF push-around vertical course is comprehensive, and covers all you need to know to operate push-around vertical machines safely. When you learn with us, you can expect to be led through the following by one of our experienced IPAF PAV course tutors:
    • Introduction followed by a pre-course theory test
    • Discussion of MEWP regulations and guidance
    • Looking at machine types and their uses
    • Structural parts
    • Pre-use inspection/handover
    • Learning safe operating methods and how to utilise them to prevent hazards

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.
