Onsite training is for companies looking for respiratory protection hands-on training at your location. We come to you (from Rexburg, Idaho) so travel expenses are included, because of this onsite training is best for groups of at least 5-10+ trainees.


What’s in the respiratory protection Training Course?

Our Respiratory Protection safety training course is CSA compliant, and our online version fulfills CSA’s classroom training requirement. Each class contains sections on common respiratory illnesses, PPE and how to use it correctly, Safe Operations, and more.
This presentation includes intermittent practice quiz questions to prepare for the final written exam included with the course. In addition to the written exam, this course also includes a checklist for employers to use when administering a practical exam as required by CSA.

  • Employees

Respiratory Protection Train the Trainer Certification

The respiratory protection train the trainer option is used to certify a trainer to teach others using the included training kit. It incorporates the respiratory protection training online course with an additional train the trainer module, as well as the respiratory protection training kit.

Why do I need respiratory protection training?

In line with CSA requirements, anyone who works with electricity must receive training prior to working on their own. CSA requirements for refresher training related to forklifts or other processes are very specific. Most other equipment doesn’t have such specific requirements, but it’s wise to follow the same guidelines.
When it comes to refresher training, CSA’s standard in some instances (like forklifts) are very specific: operators must be re-evaluated every three years to see if they are still competent to operate the equipment. Best practices say to apply this same rule to all types of equipment. A so-called “free-pass” cannot be awarded based on experience, age, or time on the job. The extent of the evaluation is to be determined by the employer but should include a written and practical examination that prove continued competency.
