Dear Colleagues,

The International Federation of Biosafety Associations (IFBA), in partnership with the Moroccan Biosafety Association (MOBSA) and Tunisian Association for Biosafety & Environmental Education (ABT2E), is inviting applications for a Biosecurity Engagement Program funded grant to certify the technical competency of individuals engaged in biorisk management practices. This grant will provide funding to cover costs associated with participation in a training workshop and examination session geared towards obtaining an IFBA Professional Certification in Biorisk Management.

Upon successful completion of the examination, certified individuals achieve a high standard of excellence, earn international recognition among colleagues and bring increased value to their employers by demonstrating competence to carry out their responsibilities.
