    All the IPAF ticket does is give you an extra arrow in your quiver to getting a job. That said, a future employer will want to have an all round employee. If you can stump up the cash, it’s a rewarding day and you get to meet people and go high up in the air.
    My site overlooked the new building of the Bristol City ground so in the basket of a cherry picker gave good views, expensive views but views all the same.

    Couldn’t agree more, it’s just a way to make money, and for companies not to pay for the training. It’s something else that I now need in order to fill these Electricians Mate jobs.

    I think you need to see it as a skill that some don't have. It will put you higher up the list.
    Most sites are getting so hot on having the right cards and training to get on site!

    I never said that I don’t see it as a skill. I see it as a way of making money for another qualification. I’m also not working at the moment but I can’t seem to get a Mates job that doesn’t have IPAF now as a requirement. Also even when I find one they don’t respond or then want 2 recent references.

    Did mine just a few weeks ago. Did it with one call training. It's a decent course and good to have an IPAF license under your belt

    @RDB85@RDB85 Ask them if they have an easy payment scheme for a couple of months. You won’t be the only one short of readies needing IPAF for a job.

    I’d go with IPAF over PASMA in order to get a job though. Lots of builds with indoor hieght access vehicles especially as an electricians mate with agency.
    Perhaps Santa will be good to Him this year (even though Santa doesn’t exist - cover your eyes Buzz!)

    The problem is that Pasma is needed just as much on the sites I attend.

    Ironically the course is cheaper even though it's more effort!

    We done Pasma on our Level 2. As part of it was to erect a Mobile Scaffold Tower. I will ask the tutors if I need to do a Pasma course.

    Could do with more than Santa being good to me. Need a miracle at this rate to get a job.
