Fit Test Train the Trainer
This page showcases our unique fit testing trainer program. It will show you how we help to get YOUR fit testing program up to speed.
We have been passionate about training and about keeping workers safe for years. Originally, we outsourced the fit testing to other providers.
As safety focused trainers, we didn’t always like how other providers were treating the fit testing procedure. Too many workers were given poor service.
We built our own fit testing program based on OSHA requirements and our safety culture.
In short, we don’t allow short cuts.
You can read the fit testing program process below.
Fit testing is not magic and is not the beginning nor ending of a respiratory protection program.
If you’re looking for the barest minimum fit testing training, then this is probably not the program for you. We start with an overview of the paperwork you will need to keep your program running correctly.
This is a multi-session coaching program which will require you to obtain separately your own fit testing kit to complete.
We started fit testing to help more workers.
Now we fit test and train hundreds of workers every year. Education and training are important, but experience is also necessary to build competence.
For your fit testing practice, we are recommending that you obtain either a trusted partner or a CPR type dummy that you can practice fit testing on before your evaluation.
Yes, there will be a test.
The ideal fit testing environment is calm and quiet.
Yet that is not how life works.
Too many workplaces a filled with distractions, phones ringing, employee drama, and ongoing operations.
Finding the best place to perform the fit test will help, but the fit testing technician will need to be able to perform the entire test from memory.
Protect yourself from COVID-19.
Fit testing generates a mist which can enhance the transmission of airborne pathogens. We will talk about layers of controls that are known to reduce the risk of illness.
We may be able to start as soon as today depending on your schedule.
- Advanced applicants who already have the needed fit testing equipment could theoretically complete the program in as little as one day. The main hurdles to completing all three fit testing training modules are the time to obtain a fit testing kit and resources to practice the fit test. Certain applicants, such as those in some health care settings, may already have these resources at hand.
Take as long as you need to complete the program.
The fit testing train the trainer program uses flexible scheduling.
- Each coaching session is only scheduled when you are ready to advance to the next stage. If you need a few weeks to complete your fit testing training, we want your program to be successful.
This is a one-on-one fit testing training program.
Your fit testing instructor will first want to hear about your goals and make sure that your program will be successful.
- Most candidates find that the three coaching sessions are more than enough. However, if you have a more complex situation and would like to purchase additional coaching sessions then they are available for the commensurate fee.
Those are only a few of the benefits of taking your fit testing train the trainer online.
Consider also the savings by not having to get on an airplane and stay in a hotel in some other part of the country.
“Just read the instructions and start fit testing!”
Yes, always read the instructions.
You must also make sure that you are keeping the proper fit testing records and know how to troubleshoot the program when things go wrong.
But doesn’t the manufacturer have a training video?
Most fit testing kit manufacturers put out excellent short videos that are a few minutes long to show you how their products are used. You should use these videos while determining which fit testing kit you would like to purchase.
“What do I need to get started?”
There are no pre-requisites to start performing fit tests.
OSHA does require that the fit testing provider is knowledgeable and capable in preparing and administering the test.
You can sign up through the link on the coaching portal. A fit testing instructor will contact you to schedule an initial session over Zoom. To complete the fit test train the trainer you will need to purchase a fit test kit and also have either a trusted partner to practice fit test with or a CPR dummy. If you want to purchase these after the first coaching session and wait for them to arrive before starting the second session that is OK.
