IPAF is starting a pilot fire-fighting course for mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) in the Netherlands from January 2010.

The course is aimed at all fire fighters who operate rescue vehicles including MEWPs and ladders.

It was initiated in response to the request of several fire brigades for a standard fire-fighting course tailored to their specific needs.

The MEWP fire-fighting course is conducted over three days.

The first day is for theory and practical sessions with the instructor.

The second day is for self-practice without the instructor.

The third day consists of more practice, followed by an examination with the instructor.

Successful candidates are awarded a PAL Card (Powered Access Licence) with the category Static Boom (1b) Special – Fire.

Courses will be held at Dutch fire stations using specific machines that are normally based at these facilities.
