International Access Powered Federation (IPAF) is the reconised licnece in the construction industry. If you contact Nationwide Access they will give you the costs but i think it's in the region of £250-300 for the course.

There are also inspections required under statute law that have to be undertaken by a person competent to do so.
These don't come cheap either.

I realise this is an ancient (!) thread, but it is in fact called the Powered Access Licence (PAL). It is administered by the International Powered Access Federation (IPAF). So technically it is a PAL card and logbook from IPAF.

What are you on about now?? All the OP need s to get is an IPAF ticket for the required category which lasts for 5 years and crack on. Statute law??

Unless I have completely misunderstood the response and he wants to OWN and Operate under his OWNERSHIP a machine, but that wasn't / isn't, my interpretation of the enquiry here.

Await to be scolded now, lol. :wink_smile:

I find that if you use one machine you are better off having the ticket for the two different types 3a,3b as it is cheaper and easier to do the course for both at the same time.

Many people use these machines everyday without a ticket,but if an accident happens and you don't have a ticket(even if it is not your fault)you will be the easy target for the scape goat as it will be your fault.

If you have an accident in one the first thing they want to see is your ticket - a bit like the Police checking the tax disc and tyres on the car in an accident before they check on the drivers.

The stupid thing is all the hire company's will hire it to anyone they don't give a hoot if you have a license to operate it. but as said before I don't think any companys will allow you to operate it on a site

don't use one without a harness either. i was almost catapulted from a Z 80/60. i was about 20' off the ground and manoeuvring around the site when the ground sank. we'd had about 24 hours of torrential rain and the groundworkers hadn't backfilled a trench properly. it was like the nearside front and rear wheels just fell off the earth and the cherry picker tilted at about 45˚. you could safely say that my a*** went. don't let that photograph they show you on the course (of that fella's 'nads) put you off wearing one - just make sure it's not too loose!
