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, 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.

Neil Ashdown would be my go to guy on fire doors. Unrivalled experience. He's a guy you can trust.

Dex Allen

Contractor

Thank you. I am new to the world of fire doors and it has been a good learning process for me, so thankyou for your patience with my various questions. I’m sure that now I have a better understanding of how this all works, I’ll be much better equipped to know what I’m looking at and how to proceed post-inspection with any future reports we get you to do.

Covenant Management

The consensus from the group is that the course went really well. Everyone came out with a good understanding of what is required and how we can move on. They thought the course was presented really well and having the books and memory sticks was a good way of studying the course content.
