BFPA launches training passport scheme

Posted 20 April 2017 · Add Comment

The British Fluid Power Association (BFPA) has launched a new training passport scheme for individuals working in the fluid power sector.

Raising and maintaining high standards through training and education in fluid power is one of the key remits of the association and the BFPA has been producing courses in both hydraulics and pneumatics for over 20 years, in conjunction with a national network of BFPA-verified approved training partners.
 
The new BFPA training passport card, which is a durable credit card size, includes a photograph for personal identification and lists the cardholder’s verified training course details on the back. The new training passport cards can be issued retrospectively to anyone who has completed a BFPA course completed within the past two years, or a CETOP course.
 
Benefits of the new BFPA training passport scheme include:
•    Passport holders will become a member of a national scheme administered and verified by the  UK’s national trade body for fluid power (BFPA)
•    The card will provide a simple and instant way of confirming your identification on site and fluid power training achievements to employers and customers
•    The training passport will promote and demonstrate the individual’s commitment to safe working practices and high standards in the fluid power industry
•    The card will show a personal, up to date record of the individual’s training courses and serve as a reminder for when courses need to be renewed in line with continuing professional development guidelines.
 
Commenting on the new scheme, Martin Kingsbury, BFPA Membership and Training Director said: “BFPA’s new training passport scheme is the natural progression for us at the BFPA and supports our aim of constantly raising standards and promoting safe working practices in the fluid power industry. Many of our member companies have already made a commitment to support this scheme and we are confident that it will gain momentum over the next few years and benefit both the individual employee and companies which support the scheme.”
