Ramirent Baltics completes IPAF training certification
The Estonian and Latvian training operations of Ramirent have been certified to conduct IPAF operator training.
They join the group’s Lithuanian operations completing the Baltic state training roll out by the Finnish based rental group – which is owned by France’s Loxam.
Training candidates in all three countries can now gain the internationally recognised IPAF PAL card certification.
Heiki Onton, managing director at Ramirent Baltics, said: “We are pleased that Ramirent Baltics has achieved the status of becoming a certified training centre for IPAF in all three Baltic countries. This helps us provide even higher levels of customer service when renting aerial work platforms out, and also raise the quality of work and safety when providing powered access services to Ramirent customers.”
IPAF’s representative for the Nordic & Baltic Region, Kent Boström added: “Demand for quality training across the region continues to build, a surge that began in 2018, when it was announced that a global social media company was constructing a data centre near Odense in Denmark. Mace was the main contractor on that project and specified IPAF trained operators for all aerial work platforms on site.
“I think one factor why multinational contractors require IPAF operator training is that it is certified by TÜV as conforming to the international standard ISO 18878 Mobile elevating work platforms – Operator (driver) training and audited to be consistent wherever in the world it is delivered.”
