Latest information:

The L2 Certificate in Fire Sprinkler Installation, developed by BAFSA, has been awarded government funding within England. BAFSA Skills & Qualifications Adviser, Ruth Oliver had this to say on hearing the news: I cannot express what a coup it is to achieve government funding. For industry to come together to develop a qualification is an achievement in itself, to gain government funding is beyond expectation and adds value and worth, making this a qualification that cannot and should not be ignored”.

The government funding which is only applicable in England, now enables The Manchester College  to offer the course to BAFSA members for £450 and £500 for non-members for the  academic year (September 2016-July 2017) This represents a more than 50% reduction in course fees.

Please contact Ruth via qualifications@bafsa.org.uk if you any queries.
