3B Training provides a Face Fit workshop- during the workshop, a Fit2Fit accredited instructor will give the attendees an understanding of how to conduct face fit training themselves and gain knowledge on the variations of masks available.
Firstly, all the attendees need to take the “Taste” test. This is conducted to ensure the delegate can taste the solution so the test can be taken correctly. Two different taste solutions can be used for the test. Either the bitter or sweet solution can be used based on how the person being tested reacts.
Next, the attendees will take part in the Fit Test. This requires a sequence of exercises which are performed to make sure the respirator cannot move. The test involves the delegate moving their face and body in a variety of ways to ensure the mask stays still. These exercises must be taken again and again until the delegate cannot taste the solution at all.
When the delegate is tested on a certain mask the certificate they obtain is relevant only to the mask type that works for them. If they choose after the course to use another type of mask the certificate will not be relevant for the mask type they have been tested with.
