IFBA’s Professional Certification Reaches over 50 Countries Worldwide
The IFBA’s Professional Certification program continues to expand its global footprint with certified individuals in over 50 countries worldwide. The number of individuals with their Professional Certification in Biorisk Management has now surpassed the 650 mark,representing a significant milestone for our growing international community of certified professionals. Many of these individuals have also earned additional certifications in Biosecurity, Biological Waste Management, Biosafety Cabinets and Biocontainment Facilities.
The success of the program can be partially attributed to a surge in recognition by employers and governments of the need for certifying the competency of individuals handling biological materials. On an individual level, certification has helped biosafety professionals differentiate themselves as achieving a high standard of excellence. With the dedication and commitment from IFBA’s global community of biosafety associations, and key partners, the momentum is expected to grow over the coming year by expanding the availability of IFBA’s examinations in multiple languages.
