Mobile Elevating Work Platforms – reduction to course durations

The Road Transport Industry Training Board (RTITB) have recently updated the course durations for training on Mobile Elevating Work Platforms.   This is to bring their training more in line with IPAF’s course durations (International Powered Access Federation).


The new course durations, which have been significantly reduced, are effective immediately and have now been updated on our website as follows:


Novice course (for candidates with no prior training and experience) – for up to 3 candidates the course will be 1 day.


Refresher course (for candidates with previous training in last 5 years) – we can now take a maximum of 4 candidates in 1 day (for example, two sessions with two candidates per session).


Other courses, such as Basic/Experienced and Conversion from another type of Mobile Elevating Work Platform can be completed in one day (for a maximum of 3 candidates).
