  • Daily breaks are scheduled. You will be allowed a one hour break for lunch.
  • Required Exam:  25 question multiple-choice/closed book with a score of 70% or higher to pass.
  • Respiratory Fit Testing:  OSHA requires medical monitoring prior to fit-testing and initial use of respiratory protection.  Although students will learn principles of respiratory equipment and observe a variety of respiratory protection equipment, they will not be exposed to conditions that may put them at physical risk.  After training, students will be required by their employers to obtain medical clearance in accordance with OSHA if they will use respiratory protection as part of their job duties.

Learner Outcomes

Potential Florida Licensed Asbestos Contractors or Florida Licensed Asbestos Consultants must attend to meet a portion of their licensure requirements. This course is also for organizations in which any employee uses a respirator. If anyone in your organization wears a respirator, OSHA 29 CFR 1910.134 requires that you have a respiratory protection program. Therefore you can also benefit from this class even if you are not in the asbestos field.
