Course Requirements

Participants should bring their organization's spirometer, mouthpieces, filters, instructional manual, laptop, etc., to ensure students receive optimal training.

It would be helpful if students could indicate in advance which model and make they plan to bring and use so the instructors can be prepared to help during the practical portions of the course.

Per MaineGeneral policy, proof of COVID-19 vaccination is required before the start of the course. This can be provided electronically.

Students should be fit tested with a N-95 mask prior to the start of the course and should wear the N-95 for which they have been fit tested for the duration of the course.

In the event a student is unable to be fit tested before the course starts, there will be an additional charge for that person to be fit tested at Workplace Health. It is time consuming and costly to so do the day of the course and participants are urged to be sure this has been completed ahead of time.
All participants of the course will be given a rapid test for COVID-19 upon course check-in, due to the requirements of the course.

During the multiple practical sections of the training, students will be provided full protective equipment, but will use their own, fitted N-95 in accordance with CDC guidelines.

Participants will be asked to sign a privacy statement either before or at the commencement of the course
