Course Duration and Delivery
Wherever you may be, in your home or office, Enviro will set up a Zoom meeting on a date and at a time convenient to you. To ensure your success you may ask questions or seek clarification at any time during the 2-hour online theory module. Following the theory module we will show you how to conduct qualitative fit testing for N95 and 1/2 face piece respirators.
Also, when you are ready to conduct actual fit testing at your facility we will set up a Zoom meeting, or visit your workplace and help you through the process to ensure your success.
