A massive welcome to Will!

Posted March 29, 2022

Will is joining our workshop team and embarking on the challenge of the ‘Level 3 Lift Truck and Powered Access Technician’ Apprenticeship which started in 2021!

This apprenticeship starts the path to becoming a fully qualified powered access technician or engineer and was developed by IPAF in partnership with the Forklift Truck Association. While the practical training is mainly based around MEWPs this course also gives the opportunity to learn the basic mechanics of forklift trucks too.

The aim of the course is to increase the number of young people entering into the profession in order to fill a growing skills gap. IPAF have great plans for the course and hopes that a similar specialist initiative will spread across to other countries.

We already have one member of our team enrolled on the course making Will the second to join, with future plans and investment we hope there are many more apprentices to join the Mainline team!
