IPAF launches training courses in Spanish

02 July 2013



The International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) has launched American Work Platform Training (AWPT) courses in Spanish following requests at the IPAF Summit in Miami.

The aerial work platform (AWP) operator course, managed in the US and Canada by IPAF’s North American subsidiary AWPT, is now available in Spanish as part of IPAF’s continuing commitment to provide training and safety material in other languages.

Tony Groat, IPAF USA and AWPT executive vice-president, called on the industry to make full use of this new service. “We open up the challenge to those in the industry. Get your employees trained in a manner they can understand for safe AWP operations. The material and the tools are there and there is no excuse for untrained workers when working at height,” he said.

The AWPT Spanish course will be available at approved training centres, including the Valcourt Exterior Building Services based in New Jersey. The AWPT eLearning module will be available in Spanish by the end of September.
