Course Overview

Our Qualitative Face Fit Tester Course delivers a minimum of 6 hours of instruction and is designed to instruct up to a maximum of 12 delegates, providing training for those looking to be able to perform qualitative face fit testing for tight fitting RPE (Respiratory Protective Equipment) within their organisation.

Face fitting is a legal requirement for all tight fitting RPE, and the qualitative face fit test is only to be carried out by a competent person. This means that individuals must have adequate training, knowledge and instruction in order to be able to demonstrate competency. This course aims to give delegates the knowledge and skills required to conduct the testing, in compliance with the relevant legislation and HSE guidance found in HSG53 and INDG479.

**Please note that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are currently unable to supply Qualitative Face Fit Testing Kit with this course. Our course price has been reduced in price to reflect this. We have test kits for the training of delegates so they are still able to successfully complete the course of instruction to enable competent face fit test training and assessment . As soon as stock becomes available we will contact all delegates who have successfully completed this course and offer a face fit test kit at a subsidised price. At present we are unable to provide a time frame as to when stock will be replenished**

This course consists of a training room lecture, DVD presentation, written assessment, practical training and assessment.

This course is suitable for those who manage the RPE in their workplace and have been assigned the responsibility for carrying out in house qualitative face fit testing on their employees/staff or are looking to begin face fitting on a commercial basis.

At the end of the theory session, delegates will take a short multiple choice test. If delegates successfully pass the test, they will then move onto the practical assessment, where they will be required to conduct a qualitative face fit test on another person under the supervision of the instructor.

Successful delegate will receive a Kentec E- Certificate of Training, valid for 3 years.
