Fire Door Awareness Training

Working together with the National Open College Network (NCON) and the British Woodworking Federation, we are qualified to deliver training on fire door installation awareness. This two-day course is just one of the training programmes we offer that are designed to educate fabricators on UK building regulations.

After the Grenfell tragedy, it's vital that we take every measure to keep buildings and their occupants safe. As such, the government has introduced new laws concerning the competency requirements for installers and fabricators. Housing, healthcare, and education are all sectors that could face significant fines for not complying. Therefore, fabricators need to ensure that their products are up to regulation standard if their products are to be used.

Our aim is to ensure that fabricators fully understand and are compliant with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety Order) 2005. We strive to make fire door safety as clear, comprehensive and jargon-free as possible. After successfully completing one of our courses, delegates will receive a Firequal-approved certificate of achievement that is valid for 5 years.

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

Dex Allen

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.
