The Balloon Federation of America's annual Online Seminar will be held on

Saturday, April 27, 2019

Registration will start on February 15, 2019

The serminar is completely video-based, so the users can watch the videos at anytime that is convenient for them. Watch at your own pace (and in your own time zone), take a small test at the end, and you will be granted insurance credit for your participation.

Of course, the BFA highly recommends that balloonists attend their local face-to-face seminar if possible. We try to schedule the online seminar later in the Spring to allow those who missed a local seminar to be able to complete a course.

We also recommend watching the seminar in groups if possible. The interaction with others often enhances the experience. We know of several balloon clubs and groups that meet somewhere with a big screen and share the experience together.
