IPAF PAL Cards Go Digital!

From 1st June, all candidates who successfully complete their IPAF training will receive their licence, logbook, and safety guide digitally through the IPAF app straight to their phone rather than receiving a physical version as previously issued. 

All IPAF documents including their licence will be accessible through ePAL which is free to download on all IOS and android devices. IPAF require all individuals attending an IPAF course to download the ePAL App prior to the training course. They will then be presented with a unique ID number. This number and the individuals email address must be passed to the instructor delivering the training at the time of the course.

If you would like a paper version of the certificate and licence, it MUST be requested at the initial point of booking the course.
