Student teams are often required to carry Liability Insurance in order to compete in events or test their projects in certain facilities. UBC may provide student teams with Liability Insurance. To request a certificate of insurance for your team, plan in advance a minimum of 2 weeks lead time. Contact the Engineering Design Team Coordinator (email@example.com) with information including: the facility requesting the certificate of insurance, any specific terms that are required, and the dates which the facility will be used.
APSC/UBC’s volunteer insurance covers design team activities, no matter where you are in the world, but that does not include the travel itself. Travel insurance usually refers to things like flight cancellation, medical insurance while in another country, etc, whereas the volunteer insurance that we purchase on your behalf would cover something like loss of limb while participating in the competition itself. Here is the link to where you can find the policy.
Hopefully this makes sense, but if you have any questions about travel insurance please reach out to the UBC Safety Abroad team, their contact information should be in the Registry you are working on.
It is recommended that teams reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org a month before competition to learn about shipping processes for their prototypes.
