Alpha Safety provides Qualitative Face Fit Certification, however, if face fit testing is something that you wish to conduct internally, this course is designed to provide you with the competence and knowledge to be able to do just that. Long-term, this course provides large cost benefits for organisations where face-fit testing is a regular occurrence.

The training programme aims to equip students with the knowledge to conduct a face fit test with the use of a qualitative face fitting kit, in addition to key knowledge of respiratory hazards and control measures.

The course is delivered by our experienced tutors. As such, tutors will also be able to provide extensive guidance on equipment; from FFP1, FFP2 and FFP3 disposable masks, through to P1, P2 & P3 half masks. This ensures that you are protected, safe in the knowledge that operatives are equipped with the correct RPE.

Need the kit? We can Help...

At Alpha, we understand that this may be something new to many organisations. If you require the equipment in addition to the knowledge to undertake in-house qualitative face fit testing we can provide both at £450 +VAT

MOLDEX Face Fit Testing Kit - £225 + VAT
