IPAF 1b Spider Lift Course

IPAF is quickly becoming the preferred MEWP ticket required on many large construction sites in Ireland including Intel, Facebook and WuXi. This IPAF course teaches you how to safely operate Spider Lifts on tracks or wheels, van-mounted booms, truck-mounted booms or trailer-mounted booms.

Flexible Delivery Options

We offer 3 options for completing this course:

  • Spend the day at our training centre where you will complete both the theory and practical sessions

  • Complete the E-learning* theory session at home or in your workplace and spend only ½ a day at our training centre to complete the practical session

  • For ultimate convenience complete the E-learning theory session followed by the practical session at your site. The theory session can also be delivered on your site subject to the availability of a training room.

* IPAF operator eLearning does not replace practical training. Trainees who complete the online theory session must pass a supervised theory test - within 45 days of the theory test being completed before being issued with a PAL Card as proof of successful operator training.
