FIRE DOOR TRAINING
"Thanks for delivering the session on Saturday. We’ve had some really positive feedback from the candidates who are now confident to be assessed by FIRAS. If we need any further training in the future, we’ll be in touch"
Martin Prior, Health and Safety Manager, LPL Construction Services
Subsequent to the Grenfell Tower tragedy in June 2017 UK Government launched an independent review of fire safety in buildings. This identified a need for improvements in the way fire safety measures, including fire doors, are installed and maintained. Currently a government led working group is looking at competency requirements for those that install and maintain fire safety measures.
These days many organisations, particularly across the housing, healthcare and education sectors, require that fire door installers, inspectors and maintenance contractors can demonstrate their competence by having suitable qualifications or certification.
Here at Fire Doors Complete, we provide in depth training for those that install, inspect and maintain fire doors. Subject to successfully completing the course, including final examination, each delegate receives a certificate of achievement.
Study work can in all cases (except for the BWF course) be done from home or at work, via our remote learning packages. However should you prefer traditional face to face methods, you can instead come to our training centre at Queniborough near Leicester.
See below for information about our training packages, with prices starting from £ 250 plus VAT.
