Intro to Quantitative Fit Testing
  An introductory level course providing a basic understanding of quantitative fit testing principles and techniques. As an overview intended for users just beginning fit testing process, this course will help to develop the foundation of answering questions such as; What exactly are fit tests “testing”? Why is fit testing important? ‘Who needs to be tested?’ And how should it be done?

RESFT 102:

PortaCount Technology
  Ever wondered just what a PortaCount does? How it works? This course gives a basic understanding the technology used by the PortaCount, and of what makes up our ambient particle concentration. And we will differentiate the N95 function from the N99 functions of the model 8038 PortaCount Pro+.

RESFT 103:

PortaCount Components and Setup
  Identifying the functions of components and accessories accompanying the PortaCount. And reviewing the manufacturer recommended setup procedures.

RESFT 104:

RESFT 105:

PortaCount-to-PC Communications
  Walk-thru the easy process of setting up and verifying PortaCount Pro/Pro+ communications. With a discussion of how to resolve the most common communication issues that users might face in the field.

RESFT 201:

Daily Checks
  A detailed explanation of why we perform the Daily Checks and what the Daily Checks can tell us about our operating conditions. Users will gain the tools necessary to quickly evaluate and resolve any potential Daily Check issues.

RESFT 202:

Real Time Fit Factor Display
  Learn how the Real Time Fit Factor Display can improve the turnaround time of your fit testing, and it’s many troubleshooting benefits. Whether for training, troubleshooting or just checking, this versatile feature should be used for every fit test.

RESFT 203:

FitPro+ Fit Testing
  A review of proper Fit Testing procedures with the FitPro+ software. Procedures described will apply to all fit testing protocols, and will cover best practices.

RESFT 204:

Troubleshooting Fit Tests
  Get the tools necessary to analyze and troubleshoot a failing fit test. Users will see how the Real-Time Fit Factor Display, available within the FitPro+ software and Stand-alone mode can help to resolve common fit testing issues. We will also look at other common culprits, such as incorrect filters or damaged mask components.

RESFT 301:

FitPro+ Report Wizard
  An overview of the FitPro+ Report Wizard. Instruction on how to modify an already existing report and how to create your own FitPro+ software reports.

RESFT 302:

Database Management
  Learn how to identify your database location, and how to create and change your active database. Get familiar with the Data Record Tools window and how you can use it to copy all or part of your database into another database.

RESFT 303:

Flash Drive Database Exchange
  Designed to support the Stand-Alone operations of the PortaCount Pro/Pro+, this course includes an example of creating, importing and exporting a database via the FitPro+ software to a flash drive.

RESFT 304:

Simultaneous Fit Testing
  Learn how to connect up to 4 PortaCounts to one computer. How to perform the Daily Checks and use the Fit Testing Dashboard when multiple PortaCounts are connected.

RESFT 401:

Intro to Stand-Alone Operations
  An overview of Stand-Alone operations, including how to create a new People record, run the Real Time Fit Factor and begin a fit test.
