Generally speaking, we only use respirator protection when atmospheric hazards are present so using respiratory protection correctly can mean the difference between life and death. Legislation requires that anyone wearing a respirator be trained and fit tested; this course satisfies legislative requirements.

This course will develop in-house respiratory protection trainers, enabling your facility to be self-sufficient in regard to your respiratory protection needs.


This course will provide learners with the ability to identify when respirators are required, how to properly use them and give them the confidence that their respirator is protecting them from hazards. Upon successful completion of this course a certificate, and/or wallet card where applicable, will be mailed to the student.


This course is designed to meet or exceed provincial legislation and industry best practices.

This course requires the leader to have Adult Learning Theory prior to this class. The course includes six hours of theory and review of Train the Trainer materials. Train-the-Trainer (TTT) learners will receive a manual that includes detailed instruction on the course to be presented and a USB that includes a PowerPoint presentation of the course, student manuals, student exams, inspection checklists and evaluation.

Target audience

This course is designed for supervisors of workers or workers who have the ability to speak in front of others and a clear understanding of respiratory protection in a manufacturing environment.

Specific learning

Topics include information about the respiratory system and how it works, the identification of contaminants and the hazards associated with them, respiratory protective equipment as well as inspection and maintenance of the equipment.
