Higher Access has refurbished its training centre and extending its offering of tracked platform training.

Higher Access Ltd the UK spider lifts rental specialist has carried out a major refurbishment of their Manchester based headquarters and is offering expanded tracked platform training.

A purpose built training facility and delegate reception area have been built to allow the company to train delegates primarily in IPAF's 1B category majoring on training for tracked access platforms.

In addition to IPAF training Higher Access is providing support and familiarisation on their wide range of tracked machines so that recently qualified operators can learn the specifics of individual machines prior to hire. The aim is to provide a safer, more efficient operator and limit onsite downtime.

The company believes that with its ever expanding fleet of machines from Teupen, Omme, CTE and another new brand arriving shortly it can offer a machine for every application.

Peter Ashburner, operations director for the company said, "With such an array of machines now available to hire, all with different drive, outrigger and boom and function controls the task of operating a spider for the first time could be quite daunting for a recently qualified operator.

"For a number of years now we've been providing familiarisation sessions on specific machines which have enabled operators to get the most from the platform and maximise the full potential of the machines that we hire, familiarisation courses are available to anybody who holds a current IPAF 1B licence or is to be trained by ourselves in that category"
