What Is Qualitative Face Fit Train the Tester Training?

Face Fit Train the Tester course provides the candidate the skills to conduct face fit testing using the Qualitative method. If Respiratory protective equipment RPE is provided to employees, or if there is a person responsible for Health and Safety within an organisation, then face fit testing is required to be carried out correctly. Documentary evidence is also mandatory to record that the RPE is both suitable for the wearer and that it has passed a fit test. This course provides that training. Face fit courses referred to as train the trainer are to provide training that allows delegates to conduct Qualitative face fit testing, it does not provide the training to enable them to teach the subject themselves.

Who Should Attend

All delegates MUST be clean shaven. The fit test section of the course cannot be carried out if there is any hair growth between the skin and the face. This includes stubble beard growth, beard or a moustache etc. The wearer should not eat, drink except plain water , smoke or chew gum for at least 15 minutes before the test.
