Bevis Respirator Consultants


Due to the out of control costs and coordination complexities of presenting open enrollment courses, Bevis Respirator Consultants has chosen to withdraw from those presentations. We have chosen instead to focus our efforts on presentations for groups or clients who can provide facilities and sufficient participants to make such trainings more cost effective. We will continue to make available, our two standard courses, the 5-day "Occupational Respiratory Protection", and the 2 1/2 day "Respirator Fit Testing", as well as special respirator courses that clients may desire.

If you are an individual wishing to attend a BRC course, some of our clients have expressed a willingness to allow others to attend trainings at their facilities.  Please contact us to discuss costs and available options.



For further details and registration information, please contact our office at (619) 275-2442 or complete Info Request on the ‘Contact Us’ link.
