The IPAF CAP training course is for MEWP engineers looking to extend their skillset and carry out MEWP inspections in line with LOLER, the Work at Height Regulations 2005 and PUWER 98 legislation. It focuses on the upkeep of the platform rather than its operation. Thus it works alongside IPAF’s operator courses to maintain high standards and to promote safe working at height.
