At Edmonton First Aid we proudly offer mask fit testing for N95, half and full respiratory masks. Our mask fit tests meet academic and workplace requirements. Learn about effective mask seals, workplace requirements, the importance of mask fitting, and how to put on, adjust tension and check your respirator.  Qualitative and quantitative mask fittings are done in a 15 to 20 minute appointment. Upon successful completion of the appointment participants will receive a fit test certificate that is valid for one year.
