The BFPA to Resume its Face to Face Open Course Training Programme

26 Mar 2021

Taking a positive view of the COVID-19 situation the BFPA have decided to resume its Open Course Training Programme this April. As a precaution we are offering reduced course sizes with individual training packs including PPE for every delegate.

The past year has taught us that particular courses work extremely well when delivered online while our more practical courses benefit from a face to face experience. The Open Course Training Programme will therefore concentrate on delivering our extremely popular and nationally recognised 2 day Hose Assembly Skills training programme alongside the 1 day Hydrostatic Proof Pressure Testing course and Small Bore Tube Integrity training course.

We will always be happy to deliver our full range of BFPA courses face to face for group bookings on dedicated days either onsite at customer’s facilities or at one of our training venues.

The success of our online training courses during this past year means that we will definitely be continuing to offer this alternative programme to maintain as wide a choice of delivery as possible.

Visit the training pages on the BFPA website for upcoming dates or contact Karen Gordon-Brander or Martin for further information on particular courses.

The BFPA Hose Scheme Accreditation Visits are Restarting

The BFPA’s Membership and Training Director, Martin Kingsbury has begun planning his programme of Hose Scheme accreditation visits to member’s facilities. He is looking forward to meeting members once again and has adopted a comprehensive set of precautionary measures including the taking COVID-19 lateral flow tests on the morning of planned visits to reassure the members as he visits their premises. Martin reports that he has had a very positive response to the visit requests already sent out for April and May.

The BFPA Hose Accreditation Scheme sets the national benchmark for quality control and safe working practices for those companies involved in the repair, servicing and making of hose assemblies.
