IPAF Powered Access Training

LTC Training Services offers IPAF training from our 3 depots in Plymouth (Devon), Redruth (Cornwall) and Cullompton (Devon). We can also carry out IPAF training onsite at a location of your choice (subject to onsite facilities)


The International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) promotes the safe and effective use of Powered Access worldwide. Set up in 1983, IPAF is a not-for-profit members’ organisation that represents the interests of manufacturers, distributors, users, rental and training companies. IPAF has played a key role in promoting many of the design, safety and testing procedures that are now established in the powered access industry.

Those who successfully complete IPAF training are awarded the PAL Card (Powered Access Licence), the most widely held and recognised proof of training for platform operators. The PAL Card is valid for five years and shows the machine categories that the operator has been trained in. It also features the holder’s photo and signature, and can be verified by calling IPAF.
