The training is presented through PowerPoint and therefore a classroom environment is required. We try to make it as interactive as possible and mix the session with some hands-on practical elements, such as pre-fit checks. Also, how to spot faulty masks and more importantly completing and recording a Face Fit Test in its entirety.
