Industry Experience

Contour Training’s industry experience includes working with both public and private sector, construction and utility sectors, government organisations, local authorities, MOD and conservation groups. We have some of the most experienced Lantra Awards and NPORS trainers in the UK, many of whom are also highly experienced with all types of all-terrain vehicles.

Why Learn?

If an organisation engages in any form of working at height, then they have a legal obligation to provide staff with the correct training. The Health & Safety at Work Act 1974 places a duty on the employer to provide an adequate level of training to allow employees to operate equipment safely and competently. The wider benefits that training can bring about include enhanced company reputation along with the improved development, morale and productivity of your workforce.

IPAF Training

IPAF courses promote the safe and effective use of powered access equipment in the workplace and conform to ISO 18878, providing suitable training and accreditation for individuals operating access equipment in the workplace.

Individuals passing an IPAF course are awarding a PAL (Powered Access Licence) card, which is valid for 5 years.

Onsite Training

Our experienced instructors will come to clients’ sites and deliver training on your machine, tailoring the training to the environment and use of the machine in the workplace. This also has the benefit of minimising downtime and travel costs for your employees.
