Door & Hardware Federation launches Online Training Courses

In response to the continuing COVID-19 issue, Door & Hardware Federation (DHF) has launched its digital training facility, enabling its audience to purchase training courses, online. 

Following government recommendations, DHF ceased its face-to-face training the week commencing 23rd March and has responded swiftly to a continuing need to provide training to its members and the wider public. 

With training very much the ‘backbone’ of DHF’s function, it has been essential to adapt to changing circumstances, as Head of Commercial Operations, Patricia Sowsbery-Stevens, explains:
“We have been working extremely hard behind the scenes to successfully bring online courses to the outside world and are now delighted to be able to offer these.” she says. 
“Although not a total substitute for the face-to-face training courses, we are confident that the online courses will provide knowledge from all elements of the complete course and a positive, rewarding learning experience.”

In particular, the one-day, Level 2 Award courses in Automated Gate & Traffic Barrier Safety and Industrial & Garage Door Safety, ideal for installers, have been filmed and edited to enable DHF to share knowledge with its learners.

Once purchased, each candidate will be able to view the units at their leisure over a 14-day access period starting from the purchase date. There are five modules in each course and these can be viewed as many times as is necessary.

“In recent weeks, businesses and organisations, UK-wide, have had to adjust to a new way of operating, and for many, other than lockdown restrictions, it is very much ‘business as usual’.”concludes Patricia. 
“DHF prides itself on keeping the industry informed by delivering training that enables safe and compliant products to be put on the market. These trying times will not compromise our offering of advice and guidance and the federation’s employees remain committed to helping its members as much as possible during this time.”

The cost of courses are £230 plus VAT for members and £330 plus VAT for non-members. The purchase of any online course also includes a free face-to-face ‘recap’ day, to include an overview of the course and all tests, (which can be accredited), at a later date, post-lockdown (to be confirmed).

To book online, please visit: and select which course to purchase. Once purchased, an access code and link will be emailed to the learner.
