Preparation for the MASK FIT TEST:

  4. Candidates with current pregnancy will be required to get the clearance from your family physician before your mask fit test. Please email us few days before so that we will send you MSDs of the spray solution we may use.
  5. You should email us the completed Mask Fit Test Questionnaire form one day before the test. We will email the form to you one day before. You can download it here as well.

You can check how we conduct the individual mask fit test through the following YouTube link.

Group Mask Fit Testing:

If you are attending a group Mask Fit Test session, we may use a special machine to do the testing. In this method we do not use any solution to spray in to your mouth. You will be educated how to don / doff the mask and do the seal checks. Then the mask will be connected to the machine and conduct the testing with a series of simple exercises. Machine will give the result as pass if there is no leak through the respirator and the Fit Factor is 100 or above.
