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.

This is why our train the tester course is a 1 day course. It would not be possible to teach all of the 16 areas of competency that are required by the HSE in half a day and we want to train face fit testers to the highest possible standards. Which is why our course has been approved by fit2fit.

Training can be conducted on your site/premises anywhere in the UK for 1 – 4 trainees.
