The aim of this course is to instruct an Operator to prepare and safely operate an Insulated Boom MEWP (IAD) to obtain an IPAF IAD Operator Licence.
At the end of the course the operator will be able to:
- Understand the care and maintenance of the insulated section of the IAD
- Manoeuvre the machine as required, to correctly position it to carry out the required tasks in a correct and proper manner
- Understand the use of a load chart and calculate the safe lifting capacity at any combination of boom angles and jib extension
- Use the over centre capabilities of the machine if applicable
Operators must have successfully completed an Operators 1b course for a minimum period of 6 months prior to the course, however other options are available i.e. or have written documented proof from their employer. A 1b category license can be obtained on this machine if required.
