What can the Acadame expert-delivered Qualitative Face Fit Train the Tester Workshop in Stoke do for me? Are you 100% certain that the respiratory masks you provide your employees with, fits them properly? If they don’t, your workforce may be at serious risk: an employee must have his/her RPE tested by a competent person to ensure your staff will not be harmed by hazardous substances.
This Face Fit Train the Tester course will provide those who require it, the knowledge of how to conduct face fit testing using the Qualitative method.
Please note: even though these training courses can be referred to as “train the trainer” they are only to provide training to allow the learners to conduct Qualitative face fit testing, not to enable them to teach the subject themselves.
