The IPAF Harness Use & Inspection Course delivers a minimum of 4 hours instruction and is designed to instruct up to a maximum of 10 delegates, providing training to safely use harnesses and lanyards when using a range of MEWPS (Mobile Elevated Work Platforms). It also covers skills such as the selection and pre-inspection of the equipment.

Those who successfully complete both the theory and practical sessions will receive an IPAF Certificate that is valid for a period of 5 years. Those who have already successfully completed an IPAF Operator Course can have the Harness category (H) added to the PAL Card, however the expiry date would then mirror the expiry date of the Operator course.
