Fire door inspectors need to have a full and comprehensive understanding of their role, and a good appreciation of the current standards.

BRE and the Door and Hardware Federation (DHF) have developed this comprehensive one-day training course that provides important details that must be addressed when conducting fire door inspections.

The training is delivered in modules and covers fire door regulations, fire door testing requirements and evidence of fire door performance.

The online version of the course does not include interaction with a trainer to ask questions, but you do have 12 months from purchase, to complete the course.

The course addresses the importance of different types of fire doors and their installation, and an appreciation of the importance of components including door closers, hinges and door hardware.

After successfully completing this course, you’ll be able to

  • Understand the regulations and standards applying to fire doors
  • Demonstrate your knowledge of the different types of fire doors
  • Appreciate the importance of critical components such as door closers and hinges
  • Clearly understand the inspection procedure and pass/fail criteria
  • Understand the advice to give the building owner/client in case of inspection failure

We can deliver face-to-face training at your own venue or provide closed group training for your organisation, contact us for further details of our in-house options.
