As part of the training, we will supply the testing equipment required, as well as one disposable mask and a training booklet for each delegate to keep. Please note, lunch or refreshments will not be included by ourselves.
We will need a training room with enough space to maintain social distancing.
Power, lighting, handwashing facilities and seating for delegates is necessary. A screen for presenting would be preferred, although we can bring a portable projector and screen, if necessary.
Our course is jam packed full of approved content and information so we allow a full day (9am – 4pm) for the training.
Occasionally the course can overrun and sometimes it will finish sooner - this usually depends on delegate numbers and their previous background knowledge (if any), of respiratory protection.
Our course is designed to provide delegates with an all-round knowledge of respiratory protection and qualitative face fit testing. The morning session will include an in depth look at the different types of RPE available, how they work, different types of filtering media, UK legislation and a practical session covering donning and doffing.
The afternoon is mainly practical – where our trainer will take you through the components of a qualitative testing kit and demonstrate a fit test to Fit2Fit standards. You will then be required, in pairs to carry out a fit test on each other under instruction from our trainer. The day is completed with a multi choice test and discussion around the test paper.
We are proud to hold Fit2Fit approval for this course as Fit2Fit are the only body in the UK who will rubber stamp competency in fit testing. The Fit2Fit standard is the gold standard and should provide you with the confidence that we are at the top of our game in this field.
Information Document INDG 479 states that RPE Fit Testing should only be conducted by a trained and competent person. To be competent, the fit test operator should have received the appropriate level of instruction and training and should be adequately informed. We welcome anyone from any industry background to take part, whether you have no previous knowledge of respiratory or if you currently work within this sector. It’s helpful when you book, to let us know what background knowledge the delegates have and our course Trainers can use this information when preparing their content delivery.
A certificate will be emailed after the event (usually within 48 hours), it will expire 2 years from the date of issue.
The training itself is a practise exercise therefore facial hair can be worn.
Going forward, should anyone require to be certified as face fit tested, the delegate being tested MUST be clean shaven.
Subject to availability, our Trainer can personally deliver them on the day of your session or we can post to a location of your choice.
The training was very good, interactive and plenty of opportunities to ask questions. Delivered in a way that was informative but wasn’t tedious – which is how some training courses can be.
Your technician was fantastic which is unsurprising given the exceptional service that we have received from your company throughout. We look forward to utilising your company in a year’s time at the point of re-newal.
It all went swimmingly…your technician was great, professional and very personable. Made sure everyone understood everything and they all left happy. We’re extremely happy with the service from Chris and yourself and think it represents great value for money – thank you very much!
We now have the information we needed and feel confident using the masks supplied having the assurance of the test results. We are very happy with your service and look forward to using you again next year.
"I needed to get our electrical team face fit tested for a huge contract we had won. I contacted the Face Fit Testers team and they were great! Kate managed the arrangements seamlessly and Rich was informative and professional during the testing. Excellent service".
Kate and the team are always a pleasure to deal with. In an industry we all Know poses a real risk to the people we employ, Kate and the Face Fit Testers are not just at the forefront of technical knowledge but can't do enough to adapt to our requirements. Great team, great service.
Face Fit Testers have provided our team at S&D Flooring with quantitative face fit testing on a number of occasions now and we are very happy with the service they provide. The service is always tailored to suit our requirements and we would happily recommend the team at Face Fit Testers to other companies.
