HSP and PBSA kick off IFBA Biorisk Management Exam Preparatory Course

Health Security Partners is pleased to collaborate with the Pakistan Biological Safety Association (PBSA) to prepare 133 laboratory professionals, scientists, faculty members, and students from Pakistan for the IFBA Biorisk Management (BRM) certification exam through an eleven-week long preparatory course. This preparatory course consists of webinars, multiple quizzes and weekly reading assignments. The 133 participants will be prepared for the exam in four groups. Each participant will receive an IFBA BRM exam scholarship from HSP to take the exam at the end of the course upon fulfillment of the course requirements. The IFBA certification is the only internationally recognized program to certify an individual’s competency in biorisk management. By taking HSP's IFBA certification course and passing the IFBA BRM Exam, course participants will be better prepared to positively influence laboratory workforce practices and attitudes towards biorisk management, feel more confident carrying out their biorisk management responsibilities and receive professional recognition for their expertise. HSP looks forward to witnessing those individuals engaged in the preparatory course receiving their IFBA BRM certification in 2022.
