Free Online Training on Fire Doors Launched for
Facilities Managers
ollowing the Grenfell Tower
tragedy and in support of this
year’s Fire Door Safety Week
(which ran from 25 September – 1
October 2017), a new free online
training tool has been launched to
boost the basic understanding of fire
doors needed by those with
responsibilities for fire safety.
The course has been developed by the
Fire Door Inspection Scheme (FDIS),
Europe's first competency framework for
fire door inspectors. It is delivered
virtually through an online interactive
learning portal and is open to anyone
who is responsible for specifying, selling,
installing or maintaining fire doors and
their components.
The service builds on the highly popular
half-day ‘Bite size fire door training
course’ launched earlier this year in
response to the increasing demand for
training to increase knowledge about the
legal and practical issues relating to fire
doors. It also provides an introduction to
the FDIS Diploma in Fire Doors.
Kevin Hulin, FDIS manager, said:
"The lack of basic knowledge about fire
doors is a real challenge to all parts of
the industry, and we felt this was
something simple that we could do to
“There are now 30 inspectors operating
throughout the UK accredited through
the FDIS process and we have had more
than 1,100 people sign up to study the
“This new course is an introduction to
the diploma, tailored for the generalist
who needs to know the basics and also
needs to be able to recognise when to
bring in an expert. I hope it will also
encourage them to continue their studies
further, and support the challenge laid
down by the Fire Door Safety Week
team to make our building stock that bit
The free online training tool is available
FDIS is Europe's first fire door inspection
scheme. It was launched in 2012 as a
joint venture between the BWF-Certifire
Scheme and the Guild of Architectural
Ironmongers. It aims to transform
people's knowledge about how and why
fire doors work and the potential dangers
of getting it wrong.
FDIS provides an online learning centre
leading to a Diploma in Fire Doors, and
a route for diploma holders to become
Certificated Fire Door Inspectors through
independent assessment by Exova
