Nationwide Platforms retains IPAF top spot

Nationwide Platforms has retained its position as Europe’s largest IPAF (The International Powered Access Federation) training provider after training more than 12,500 delegates in 2015. In addition, it trained a further 1,500 delegates on a range of PASMA, IOSH and other Health & Safety courses, making it one of the world’s largest providers of working at height training.
The company recently opened a dedicated training centre in Aberdeen, Scotland, and employed an additional two trainers to carry out training throughout the UK. Looking to start 2016 strongly, the company is currently in the process of incorporating IPAF’s new eLearning modules to its training portfolio. Delegates will now be able to complete the theory part of the course at their own pace online – anytime, anywhere and on any device – before taking a supervised theory test and practical training at an IPAF-approved training centre. Upon passing, delegates will then be issued a PAL Card, proving that they are qualified to operate aerial work platforms safely.
Nationwide Platforms provides the full range of IPAF training as well as a number of harness, demonstrator, Health & Safety and First Aid courses.
The company is also launching a new training guide to accompany its recently launched App which is now available for both Android and iPhone devices. The new App directly links with the company’s website to ensure real-time updates on training course availability and locations as well as any offers available to the customer.
Peter Douglas, Nationwide Platforms UK Operations Director, said: “We are extremely proud to retain our position as the largest IPAF training provider for yet another year. We have invested a great deal of time and effort in our training services and customer experience over the years and it is great to see that we are doing our part in keeping our customers safe. We are also delighted to see our customers endorse our services, with our Net Promoter Score positioning our training division right up there with some world class organisations.”
Tim Whiteman, IPAF Chief Executive, added: “IPAF congratulates Nationwide Platforms on such a consistent and solid performance in taking operator training right to the heart of many jobsites and helping to keep workers safe.”
Nationwide Platforms has 21 fully qualified instructors who carry out in excess of 30 unique training courses from either customer sites or from its 26 training centres throughout the UK.
