IPAF PAL PLUS (PAL+) is an optional, additional one day of category specific training. It is aimed at trained operators who work in higher risk or challenging environments, e.g. steelwork, work in confined overhead spaces or work on challenging terrain.

PAL+ Training is only open to operators who hold an existing PAL Card qualification in the relevant category.

PAL+ includes a short, compact theory session and focuses on practical training, using large machines such as a scissor lift with a minimum of 10m working height and a boom with a minimum of 15m working height. For example, one practical exercise focuses on work in confined overhead spaces; another practical exercise involves driving the machine on challenging terrain.

Candidates have to complete a theory test, a practical test and an individual interview. Upon successful completion of the theory test, practical test and interview, operators will have the relevant categories added to their PAL Card, e.g. Static Vertical (1a+), Static Boom (1b+), Mobile Vertical (3a+) and Mobile Boom (3b+).

OTS Strongly recommend that an IPAF PAL+ Instructor visits you for an introduction to the complexities of this course prior to booking.
