The Speedglas Powered Air Training Academy (SPATA)


The Speedglas Powered Air Training Academy (SPATA) has launched in Australia and New Zealand to provide workplaces with a set of online video training modules to educate and train staff in line with the suggested syllabus set out in the Australian and New Zealand Standard 1715 for workers using respiratory protective equipment.

What’s more, if your company currently employs 3M™ Speedglas™ Welding Helmets with Powered Air Purifying Respirators, this training package is completely free of charge!

OH&S legislation requires employers to provide the welder with information, training, and instruction in the proper use of PPE. As such, SPATA has been prepared in combination with occupational hygienists, welders, and industry professionals to save your business time, hassle, and expense when it comes to delivering this training.
