We are a fit2fit approved training provider, the fit2fit approval scheme requires the course content to be submitted to fit2fit so it can be scrutinised to ensure that what is being delivered is fully compliant with the HSE’s guidance and protocols.
Our Face Fit Train the Tester Courses are:
- Fit2Fit Approved, we are 1 of only 5 companies in the UK to be approved for qualitative & quantitative face fit testing training (August 2020).
- Delivered by experienced instructors who are also Fit2Fit accredited face fit testers.
- A Full Days Training Course, it is not possible to deliver this course properly as a half day course.
There are many providers who offer face fit testing train the tester courses but to what standards?
When choosing a face fit tester then only ever choose a fit2fit accredited face fit tester and make sure that you check the fit2fit register to make sure that they are accredited in the type of testing that they are providing.
If somebody is fit2fit accredited it means that they are accredited for face fit testing not for training and their training courses have not undergone any level of scrutiny to ensure that the content is fully compliant with the HSE’s guidance and protocols.
When choosing a course it is only fit2fit approved training companies and NOT fit2fit accredited face fit testers that have proved that their course content is up to the required standards of the HSE.
- Train you to the highest possible standards.
- Provide you with a resource pack to enable you to run your own face fit testing successfully.
- Provide you with on-going support where required after your training course.
- Comply with Government COVID Secure Guidance (if the training is on your site then suitable facilities will need to be provided).
Quantitative Face Fit Testing (APC method):
A quantitative face fit test can be used on all respirator types, full face, reusable half masks and disposables.
The test requires the use of an ambient particle counting device (AccuFit or TSI PortaCount) this is an objective test, we are not relying on any input from the test subject, the machine determines the pass or fail.
We can supply you with your AccuFit or PortaCount machine and all accessories.
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.
Only a maximum of 4 trainees per course.
The room provided has to be large enough for the instructor 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.
