They are being run by BRE, which provides expertise on every aspect of the built environment and the Door & Hardware Federation (DHF), which represents the leading manufacturers and installers of industrial and commercial doors, shutters and building hardware.
The programme comprises four training modules: fire door inspection, the installation and maintenance of timber fire doors, steel hinged fire doors, and fire shutters. The one day courses are taking place in October and November at BRE Watford and BRE Scotland (East Kilbride).
Those attending the Fire Door Education Programme courses will include building control officers, facilities managers, safety inspectors, insurers, fire risk assessors and other fire professionals involved in the installation, inspection and repair of fire doors. It is designed to build delegates’ knowledge of the different types of fire doors, will cover the importance of critical components such as door closers, and develop delegates’ understanding of the inspection procedure and pass/fail criteria.
The training programme was originally developed following widespread publicity and concerns that the integrity of fire doors is being compromised in residential apartment blocks and public buildings.
Michael Skelding, DHF general manager and secretary said:
“Worries about the integrity of fire doors in buildings led BRE, in partnership with ourselves, to develop the programme specifically for those already actively involved in the inspection, installation and repair of fire doors.
“The correct specification and installation of passive fire protection is critical to the safety of building occupants. Inspection professionals must ensure that appropriate products are installed to the proper standard. This training scheme significantly adds to their knowledge of fire doors.”
The next fire door inspection courses are taking place on October 2nd at BRE Watford and November 18th at BRE Scotland. The timber fire door installation, repair and maintenance course is on October 8th at BRE Scotland. The metal fire door installation, repair and maintenance course is on October 14th at BRE Watford and November 19th at BRE Scotland. The Roller shutter installation, repair and maintenance course is on November 12 at BRE Watford.
