Face Fit Train the Tester

Training and Testing Services are a fit2fit accredited training company. RPE fit testing should be conducted by a competent person. To be competent the person should have adequate knowledge, and have received adequate instruction and training in the the 16 areas detailed in HSE INDG 479.

Due to the coronavirus we have had to make significant changes in how we conduct our face fit testing train the tester course on site at our customers premises. Training on your site must be conducted in line with our current guidance.

Further to conducting face fit testing for the NHS during the coronavirus pandemic and following guidance from the Health and Safety Executive the following measures will help us to minimise the risk of contamination whilst still delivering the highest quality service.

Only a maximum of 4 people to be in the room with the instructor at any time. 

The room provided has to be large enough for the tester plus 4 people to allow for social distancing and to allow for the setting up of the equipment. If the room isn’t big enough then we will reduce the number of trainees accordingly.

The room requires natural ventilation and access to clean drinking water is also required.

Attendees will always be expected to practice safe social distancing during the testing session.

Where social distancing cannot be maintained due to the needs of the job then face coverings (masks) will be used to minimise the risk and will be done for the shortest amount of time possible.

All masks for your staff need to be supplied by you our testers will bring their own masks and gloves with them.

Want us to come and do your face fit testing for you? Why not visit our face fit testing page for more information.

We offer 2 different types of face fit train the tester courses, one course covers the Qualitative Face Fit Testing method and the other covers the Quantitative Face Fit Testing (APC method).

Our Qualitative train the tester course is fit2fit approved. The content of our course has been judged to include all aspects of the health and safety executive’s face fitting guidance and protocols and is delivered by a fit2fit accredited face fit tester.

Training can be conducted on your site/premises anywhere in the UK for 1 – 4 trainees. Alternatively, we run open courses where you can book 1 or more places on a public course – see our upcoming events list. All our courses include an instructor pack.

If you need to answer the question where can I learn to be a face fit tester? or how to do face fit testing? then we can help. All our face fit train the tester courses can include a face fit testing kit/portacount machine (available to purchase at time of booking) and all training includes a face fit certificate.

If you are looking for a train the trainer course, sadly this course does not exist. In order to be qualified to teach others to conduct face fit testing first of all you must attend a train the tester course like ours and be trained up by a qualified professional. Then you need to gain experience in face fit testing. It is only once you have gained the knowledge and experience that you would be able to train others to conduct face fit testing. By attending a train the tester course you will be able to conduct face fit testing on others.

On-Site Training Courses

Our expert fit2fit accredited testers can visit your site to undertake your face fit train the tester training. We will schedule the face fit test training to take place at dates and times to suit you, reducing disruption and making it easier to arrange staff cover.

You will benefit from reduced costs – it is far cheaper to train a group of people at your site than for you to send people individually to external training centres. You will also avoid paying for staff travel expenses.

Your group will be trained in a familiar environment and learning with their fellow team members which fosters great team spirit and is good for staff moral.

Not only are our expert instructors all highly qualified but they are also qualified to teach and are fully experienced in ensuring that course delegates learn in the most effective manner. We offer quantitative face fit train the tester and qualitative face fit train the tester.
