COVID-19 Compliance Statement
Currently, all BIFA courses, except for Dangerous Goods, will run as either online or virtual classroom until further notice.
Dangerous Goods Courses
All classroom Dangerous Goods training offered by BIFA is booked and delivered via a third-party CAA approved Dangerous Goods training provider.
Cargo Training International (CTI)
CTI use external venues for their public Dangerous Goods training courses. The venues have all provided their COVID-19 procedures and will be working to government guidelines on sanitising public areas and social distancing measures. The venues will provide hand sanitation upon arriving at the venue and at key points throughout their premises.
Food and beverages will be made available at venue, but buffet style lunches are forbidden under current government guidelines, so venues are providing either boxed individual lunches or food to order (this will vary by venue).
In addition to the above CTI are ensuring that all training material is sanitised before handed out to students. Exam papers will be handed out via an envelope from which students will take one exam paper. There will always be sanitiser available in the classroom so the students can sanitise their training material if they feel it has been compromised. Government Social Distancing guidelines within the classroom and wider venue will and must always be followed.
To conform with government Track and Trace procedures, a COVID-19 registration form must be completed prior to the start of each course to ensure the delegate is well. CTI may take delegates temperature at any time if it is necessary to do so, this may be carried out by the venue. If a delegate feels unwell at any time, they must inform the instructor immediately and follow government guidelines to isolate and contact the NHS.
These procedures are under constant review and will be updated when government guidelines change.
