The IFBA partners with corporations and partners who wish to sponsor a candidate’s certification exam or recertification fees. Pairing of sponsors and candidates in a country or region is based on several criteria including:
- The sponsor’s desire to support an individual in a certain country or region based on their core business
- A need identified by the IFBA or its Member Biosafety Associations
- Requests from individual candidates for sponsorship of their exam fees
Payment for candidate exam fees are made directly to the IFBA Secretariat and not to the individual candidate.
