In-depth training for those who install, inspect & maintain fire doors.

Since the Grenfell tragedy, the UK government has introduced new legislation on how fire doors are installed and maintained. However, there are also requirements concerning competency for installers, fabricators, inspectors and maintainers. Housing, healthcare and education are all sectors that demand their fire door installers, inspectors and maintenance contractors to have the suitable qualifications.

Our training courses aim to make fire door safety as clear, comprehensive and jargon-free as possible. Upon completing one of our fire door training courses, each delegate will receive a certificate of achievement.

Just a note, as you know, I have studied a LOT but I have to say, I`m about halfway through the video presentation and for all the study I`ve done, this is by far THE BEST training I have encountered 😊 Kudos to you, I don't know how long it took you to compile this course but WOW 😯 I`ll study, re-study then re-study again then read the book and keep taking the test, if anybody wants/needs training I`ll definitely be sending them your way, wish I purchased your course first, (although then I wouldn't know how good your one is 😆) thanks so much.

Just a big thank you following the recent FDC FD Inspectors Course. It was a really worthwhile couple of days where I learnt a lot and developed through practice and professional discussion. The input was well thought out and offered a real move forward after the other courses on fire doors I've undertaken. Thanks for the time taken, really worthwhile.
