The BFA Continuing Education program provides standards for Hot Air Balloon Continuing Education Conferences. Each event is to have eight hours of class time and cover pertinent subjects as approved after filing an application prior to the event. Once an event has been completed with post event data submission and the fee paid, the data will be reviewed for compliance. When all’s done, the event will be granted BFA sanction and the data sent to the BFA and insurers.
