F22 Winner passes IPAF Training for truck mounted platforms
The winner of our F22 photography competition, James Whitaker, has successfully completed his IPAF Training in the 1b (static boom) category for truck mounted platforms. The training was held at our Hickstead Depot in Sussex with perfect weather. IPAF course began at 8 in the morning with a theory test followed by practical course in the afternoon. James passed easily and now holds an IPAF PAL card, so he is now qualified to operate truck mounted platforms to 27 metres.
For the practical training, an Ascendant 17 - 12 was used, this is an excellent truck mounted platform to begin training on. The simple, reliable design and sturdy build make this a great cherry picker for the self drive market, at only 3.5 ton this can be driven on a standard driving license, training can be completed in a day so you are fully qualified and confident to operate.
