IPAF Training

Shee Shu Leng has become the first female MEWP operator in Malaysia to gain IPAF’s Class 3A and 3B Category certification.

Shu Leng received her PAL Card earlier this year after completing the scissor and boom lift categories. Shu Leng is sales manager at Aerial Lift & Equipment, part of the TVH Group and a JLG distributor based in Kuala Lumper.

“I have been working with Aerial Lift & Equipment for eight months now. I am glad that my company gave me the opportunity to get the IPAF operator license although I had just joined the MEWP industry, for about two months, at the time.”

Malaysia is a fast-growing access equipment market and is considered the leader in the Southeast Asia region. There are an estimated 5000 - 6000 MEWPS working in Malaysia, which is expected to grow dramatically in the next few years.

Kang Han Fei, managing director at Aerial Lift, said the company was working to educate the market, which has a high concentration of used equipment, about the benefits of using new equipment. Aerial Lift is also concentrating on training and has become one of the first IPAF certified training providers in the country.

PAL Card

“We offer JLG and IPAF operator training and all our staff have PAL Cards. We are educating the rental companies. That is why we are concentrating on training, not just technical training but safety and operator training.”

The target for the first quarter, after receiving its training licence is 48 PAL Cards, followed by 72 in the next quarter.
