Ladies with a Licence to Lift!

Here at Lifterz we relish a new challenge, so when the opportunity came to take part in an IPAF training course two of our Hire Desk Controllers Juste Revuckaite and Elle Hill quite literally rose to the challenge!

The ladies took part in one of our training courses on offer – the IPAF Scissor & Boom licence 3A & 3B, which includes knowledge based theory test and practical exams on both machines. The course aims to educate trainees on all rules and regulations from the basic safety checks to the correct usage and driving techniques.

Both girls passed the theory test with flying colours, and then it was onto the practical! The 1st challenge was to drive an Electric 19ft Scissor – (our popular GS 19-32) around a series of cones and demonstrate a lift and reverse manoeuvre.

Braving the cold – Elle takes the reigns of the Genie GS-1932.

Elle commented – “It was great to have a go on the machine and see how it worked and drove – despite the freezing weather!!” Next up was the Boom exam, the machine in question was our Niftylift HR12. Again both ladies drove the machine around a challenging course and were assessed on their abilities. Juste said of her experience – “It was fun to drive and it was good to see all the different functions the machine has, I just tried not to look down!”

Raising the bar – Juste taking things to new heights in the HR12 boom.

The ladies had the benefit of the experience of some of our top trainers – Andy Legge, Quintin Wilson, Reuben Bowers, who aimed to make the course fun as well as informative. Andy commented – “I was very pleased with both girls, they showed a lot of interest in the theory and I was also pleased with how they performed in the walk around and on the practical tests – NO FEAR!!” Our IPAF Rental+ accreditation for access hire, guarantees you the highest standards in customer service, safety, staff training, machine inspection, and contract terms.
