This course teaches operators how to safely and efficiently drive/position, set up, and elevate machines. You can undertake it on scissor lifts, booms or trailer mounted platforms.
1a and 1b are for what IPAF terms “static” booms and scissor lifts – machines that deploy outriggers, so cannot be driven when elevated.
3a and 3b courses are for self-propelled machines, which can be driven when elevated. Typically these are scissor, booms, mast lifts and cherry pickers.
