PIPA Operator Training

Find out more information about what the PIPA operator training course is, and how you can complete it.


The PIPA Operator Training Course provides operators of inflatable devices with the underpinning knowledge required to safely operate and supervise an inflatable.

As part of Health & Safety law, you & your employees must be suitably trained to not only supervise users, but also ensure equipment is safe to use. The PIPA Operator Training Course provides you with the theory and practical demonstration to help you to show you meet this requirement. This training can be completed by anyone who is new to the industry, to long-standing members who want to support their evidence to show they operate in a safe manner.

To find out more about the course and the learning outcomes, please read our attendee information pack (click on the button to download).

The PIPA Operator Training Course is provided through accredited PIPA Accredited Trainers. The accredited trainers are experienced PIPA inspectors, who have completed the additional training to become accredited to provide our operator training course.
