When employees working for the UK’s leading games retailer needed IPAF accredited operator training they turned to a training provider who is at the top of their game – UTN Training.
Seven employees from Game Retail Ltd’s Basingstoke distribution centre undertook IPAF MEWP Operator training – a mix of theory and practical training designed to enable operators to manoeuvre, drive and position MEWPs safely and proficiently.
Matthew Weedon, Game Retail Site Engineer, was one of the people who undertook the training. He said: “We carry out a large amount of work at height, whether it be replacing and inspecting lighting, maintenance or stock control. We have used towers and scaffolding in the past but have often found this method to be very time consuming.
“With a large lighting project planned in the coming months, we felt it was an ideal time to take the IPAF Operator course and gain our PAL licences. This means that we can now hire and operate scissor and boom lifts when we need them.
“UTN Training was recommended to us and we were very pleased with the service they provided. They had no issue coming to our site to carry out the theory side of the training in our offices and the practical training in our yard. They also arranged the hire of scissor and boom lifts on our behalf for the practical training from their sister operation, AFI. The hire and off-hire was completed very efficiently using AFI’s email notification system.”
