The Independent Respiratory Protection training is essential for individuals operating in environments with contaminated air. Delivered by Peinemann Training Center, this course prioritises the safe use of breathing apparatus and air net systems, alongside risk mitigation strategies when handling hazardous substances. Led by experienced instructors in a professional setting, the comprehensive two-day foundation course imparts both theoretical understanding and practical competencies.


Designed for both newcomers to respiratory protection and individuals seeking certification renewal, a shorter one-day refresher course is available. Moreover, participants have the opportunity to enrich their training with an SOG examination, endorsed by the Stichting Samenwerken Voor Veiligheid (SSVV).

Additionally, a valid medical examination for compressed air is mandatory, and individuals must ensure removal of facial hair to ensure proper sealing of the respiratory protection.
