Applications are invited for IFBA Global Mentorship program

| Published: 26/02/2019 post | BMAK Aggregator

The IFBA Global Mentorship Program is a worldwide initiative to support and sustain the international biosafety and biosecurity community. Mentor and Mentee pairs are matched based on region and professional discipline to encourage locally relevant professional guidance in any and all IFBA Professional Certification domains, including:

  • Biorisk Management
  • Biosecurity
  • Biological Waste Management
  • Biocontainment Facility Design, Operations, and Maintenance
  • Biosafety Cabinet Selection, Installation, and Safe Use
Mentor and Mentee pairs are brought together to discuss regional and global issues and opportunities pertaining to biosafety, biosecurity, and biorisk management. Mentees will receive guidance in obtaining IFBA Professional Certifications and other career developing skills, and mentors may put their experience towards renewing their existing IFBA Professional Certifications!

The IFBA Global Mentorship Program is currently available in English and French* languages, although you are encouraged to collaborate with your Mentor or Mentee in any shared language you want!
