Why choose IPAF?


The PAL (Powered Access Licence) Card is internationally recognized and valid for 3 years in NZ and 5 years internationally.  The course is comprised of both practical and theory based learning with assessments. The classes are kept small to maximize individual learning. The IPAF training centers are regularly audited to ensure they meet and adhere to the IPAF standards. Training centers also receive regular updates to ensure that you are receiving the best training possible. The PAL card can be instantly verified via an online database which not only includes a photo of the card holder but details of the card expiration date and machines the card holder can operate. Together with the PAL card identifying their qualifications, each candidate is given a log book to record their machine use and an operator handbook. All machine manufacturers supplied by the Accessman Group are aligned with IPAF. We offer the following; 1 machine - 1/2 day duration. 2 machines - 1 day duration. 3 machines - 1 1/2 day duration. Want to know more? Contact training@accessman.co.nz or call us on (03) 341 6333
