Air Purifying Respirator (APR) Certification Course Description:
APR Training is a classroom-based course that provides information and practical training for the effective care, use and inspections of an Air Purifying Respirator. During this course, you will learn what environments an air purifying respirator is effective in along with the components that make one up.
This course is for anyone that works in environments where there is the potential for exposure to chemicals or airborne particulates (low to medium hazard levels only). APR Certification is a separate designation from our Respiratory Protective Equipment Training course, however, it can be arranged in the same session so repeat visits are not required. If you require both courses, please let your representative know at the time of booking so that your training appointments can be coordinated concurrently.
