Training Schedule

Due to the Alberta Government’s announcement yesterday regarding precautionary measures, we have decided to cancel classes and the respirator fit testing for today. We will be examining the various facilities we conduct our courses and determine our path forward after careful consideration. We will be looking into minimizing the class sizes along with other hygiene safety measures.

We understand there are workers who will require the training to continue working and feel it necessary to provided the training with some extra precautions.

Further updates will be provided later today .

Covid 19 – Safety Measures

We want to let everyone know that we are taking extra measures to ensure the safety of our employees and visitors to our training centres.

Proper hygiene can help reduce the risk of infection or spreading infection to others:

  • wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after using the washroom and when preparing food
    • use alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available
  • when coughing or sneezing:
    • cough or sneeze into a tissue or the bend of your arm, not your hand
    • dispose of any tissues you have used as soon as possible in a lined waste basket and wash your hands afterwards
  • avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands
  • clean the following high-touch surfaces frequently with regular household cleaners or diluted bleach (1 part bleach to 9 parts water):
    • toys
    • toilets
    • phones
    • electronics
    • door handles
    • bedside tables
    • television remotes

We ask that if you are experiencing any common signs of infection including respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties that you seek medical attention and stay home.

We are taking extra measures to ensure that the “high-touch surfaces” are cleaned thoroughly with disinfecting solutions each day. We continue our strict manufacturer’s protocol for cleaning and disinfecting the respirators that we are using for the respirator fit tests. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to call us.

Spring Shutdowns

Our classes are starting to fill up. Check your safety training certifications and if you are expiring soon, be sure to get yourself registered. It’s important to be work ready now rather than leaving the training to the last minute. We are also continuing to conduct respirator fit testing on a daily basis in Edmonton and have select days in Calgary, please call us to book your appointment.
