IPAF Instructor Course

Training for instructors of mobile elevating work platforms


Back to Overview

Building on the IPAF operator training course, trainees can take on the role of supervisor with the IPAF supervisor course, which offers the following advantages:


  • The instructor course is valid for 5 years and must be renewed within the validity period
  • Faster and more efficient instruction on the work platforms, so there is no need to wait for instruction when the equipment is handed over
  • Comprehensive knowledge of how to operate the work platforms

The training course lasts one day. The training is held either at one of our training centres throughout Germany or at your premises.
