It is highly recommended by New Heights Industries that workers be fit tested in conjunction with this training.

NOTE: New Heights strongly recommends to the Client that refresher courses (2 hour duration) for workers required to use self-contained breathing apparatus or supplied air respirators be instituted to ensure consistency in the training standards and quality. This refresher training should take place within the first 12 months after the initial SCBA / SAR training.
