Fire Door Inspection Scheme Goes Live
The Fire Door Inspection Scheme (FDIS) is now live at www.fdis.co.uk
The website gives full details of the scheme and the FDIS online education programme which is available to anyone who wishes to have a greater knowledge of fire doors and a qualification to prove it.
From today you can register with FDIS, start working through the online education modules at your own pace, and take the Diploma in Fire Doors. Successful candidates will be entitled to use the designation DipFD after their name.
Work is also nearing completion on a Transition Module which provides a route for Diploma holders to become Certificated Inspectors. To achieve this they must successfully complete the module and go on to pass an on-site practical assessment of their skills and knowledge.
Register for news updates by signing up to the FDIS mailing list – this will also give you advance information on the promotional events being held later this Spring.
The FDIS is the first such scheme in Europe, designed to transform people’s knowledge and understanding about the critical purpose and function of fire doors. Its ultimate purpose is to help improve safety and save lives through creating a new pool of expertise and competence to help those with legal responsibilities under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order. It provides a vital new resource to help the ‘Responsible Person’ complete fire risk assessments for the premises they manage. It also raises awareness of defective fire doors and the potentially tragic consequences of leaving these unchecked.
