The International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) has issued the one-millionth PAL Card (Powered Access License or Powered Access Licensed-Registration in North America) under its voluntary, industry-led operator training program which is certified by TÜV as conforming to ISO 18878.
To celebrate the one-millionth PAL Card ever issued, IPAF is calling all valid PAL Card holders to enter a prize drawing. The PAL Card expires after five years. There are currently more than 500,000 valid PAL Cards worldwide.
There will be five top prizes for verified operators to win a free trip to the access event of the year, the IPAF Summit and International Awards for Powered Access (IAPAs)—flight, accommodation and gala dinner included. This event will be held March 25 to 26, 2015 at the Crystal Gateway Marriott Hotel in Arlington, Va., near Washington, D.C.
“The secret of the PAL Card’s success is the guarantee that the training and testing is delivered to consistent standards worldwide by highly motivated and qualified instructors,” said IPAF CEO Tim Whiteman.
All valid PAL Card holders are invited to enter the drawing by verifying their PAL Card online.
The competition closes on Jan. 26, 2015. The winners will be announced Feb. 1, 2015.
