At Kelowna First Aid we proudly offer respiratory mask fitting which is a requirement for many workplaces and school admissions. This short, 15 minute appointment can be either partnered with a standard first aid and or CPR HCP course or provided in a stand-alone format. Many of our participants need mask fit testing for health sciences and nursing programs in schools such as BCIT, Okanagan College and the University of British Columbia (UBC). At Kelowna First Aid we do mask fitting for full and half respiratory protection masks as well as for simple N95 masks (surgical).
