IPAF (International Powered Access Federation) issued a record 81378 PAL (Powered Access Licences) cards in 2008. That was 8.1% more than the 75212 cards issued in 2007.
The 2008 number was 89% over the 43007 cards issued in 2004, which are due for renewal in 2009. (The PAL Card is valid for five years.)
"Training will grow steadily in 2009, as new markets and industrial sectors embrace the benefits of internationally recognised operator training," said Tim Whiteman, IPAF managing director.
