Fire Doors in Residential Buildings Diploma – IFSM Accredited

Understanding the requirements, carrying out inspections and assessing fire doors in residential buildings

With the new Fire Safety Act 2021 and its application into the overall Fire Safety Order, the expectation of building owners within multi-occupied residential buildings to assure themselves that the critical fire doors meet the required standards has never been so scrutinised. This requires an appropriate assessment, through inspection, to be completed of each individual door to ascertain its suitability, and where necessary, to effect remediation or replacement.

This detailed, professionally designed two-day course has been developed specifically for the housing sector to provide compliance with the recent direction from the MHCLG.

This two-day course is split in to six ‘bite-size’ modules which will provide delegates with the theory behind the requirements (multi-choice assessment at the end of each module to confirm learning) as well as a practical assessment to ensure that delegates can put into practice what they have learnt.

  • Fire Dynamics
  • Passive Compartmentation
  • Legislation and Guidance
  • Fire Door Specifications
  • Individual Standards
  • Risk Assessment & Inspection
  • End of Course Practical Assessment

Following successful assessment, delegates will not only have the underpinning knowledge and practical skills, but the confidence to carry out the necessary inspections and determine the proportionate outcome for each fire door and illustrating that the life safety of your tenants is paramount to your organisation.
