MEWP Harness Training

AJ Rentals are able to offer training through AFI-Uplift, one of the UK's leading IPAF and PASMA training providers.

AFI is proud to be registered as an approved IPAF training centre. As the most established access platform training provider, recognised UKCG (United Kingdom Contractors Group), IPAF courses provide the ideal path to gaining qualifications.

Training for this course is for a minimum duration of 4 hours (1/2 day). Although training will cover a range of MEWPs (Mobile Elevating Work Platforms), if delegates require achievement testing on specific categories of machine, this should be highlighted when booking the course.

Upon successful completion, delegates who hold an IPAF PAL (Powered Access Licence) card will have it endorsed with this qualification. Those who don’t hold a PAL card will receive an IPAF certificate.

  • Applicants should be at least 16 years old and physically fit;
  • It is desirable (but not mandatory) that applicants hold a valid IPAF PAL card.
N.B. If you have any concerns about whether you are eligible to undertake this course, please contact us.


By the end of the course, the delegate will:
  • Be able to identify and select the correct harness for use in a MEWP (Mobile Elevating Work Platform);
