The IPAF Harness Training course has changed and is now delivered in a new format.
What used to be a half day course has been split into three parts:
Harness Awareness (HA)
All candidates will start on the Harness Awareness course which is delivered via E-learning. This course gives the candidate a background understanding of the selection and safe use of harnesses.
Harness User (HU)
After completing the Harness Awareness course, candidates can continue their training and add on the Harness User course where they will be assessed in fitting and using a harness. This will take place at one of our training depots and last approx 15-20 minutes.
Harness Inspector (HI)
If candidates are required to carry out a six-monthly inspection of a harness, they can take the Harness Inspector course. This will also take place at one of our training depots and will last around three hours.
