Credit for Outside Vendor Training
You may be able to receive credit for training obtained elsewhere (through your employer, at an American Red Cross facility etc). Submit your documentation to the Training Center and we will forward it to the PUMP committee for approval at its monthly meeting. Credit is given only for training obtained outside of paid hours.
The Training Center conducts respirator training session and fit testing. Follow the instructions for setting up the appointments and procedures for both the Respirator Medical Test and the Respirator Fit Test.

Procedures for the Respirator Medical Test
Procedures for the Respirator Medical Test Painters Union Management Partnership (PUMP) Program
Step 1– Medical Evaluation
You must have had a respirator medical evaluation within the last three years. Call the Training Center and request a voucher from the Training Center (or write “Respirator Medical Evaluation on the registration form and one will be mailed to you). If you do not show up for a scheduled appointment, you will be charged $50. You will not be charged if you cancel the appointment at least 24 hours in advance. If you already have a current medical evaluation on file at the Training Center, skip to Step 2.
See above info about scheduling an appointment if you haven’t had a medical evaluation with a Providence Occupational Health clinic within the last three years.
Take the voucher with you to the appointment or you will have to pay for the exam yourself.
When the medical evaluation is complete, you will be given a Respirator Medical Certification letter explaining respirator limitations, if any.
Procedures for the Respirator Fit Test
Step 2 – Respirator Fit Test
Call the Regional Training Center and schedule a respirator training session and fit test. To schedule an appointment, call 503-287-4856. Bring your Medical Certification letter if we do not already have it on file. The training session is a user-friendly computer program developed by the Oregon Health Sciences University and requires about one hour to complete. When you have finished the computer training, you will be given a fit test. If this is your first fit test, a respirator will be issued to you. If you are returning for the annual training and fit test, bring your respirator with you.
