The FDIS race is on!
With the launch of the Fire Door Inspection Scheme at the beginning of February – the race is on amongst the Lorient team to see who can complete and pass this brand new Diploma first. With 10 of its Commercial team already registered and studying hard, there will be some kudos attached to the first past the post! The FDIS Diploma – thought to be the first of its kind in Europe, is a unique qualification in Fire Doors. It is accessed wholly on-line and the course – comprising a set of 7 modules – is studied entirely at a candidate’s own pace. The Diploma addresses many issues relating to the construction, installation and maintenance of fire doors and their all-important components. The Scheme – delivered through a collaboration of the BWF Certifire Scheme and the Guild of Architectural Ironmongers – is fast gaining momentum amongst the UK door manufacturing and ironmongery industries. With interest from further afield too – it is hoped that the FDIS can extend its reach to overseas markets in time.
Check back here soon to see who attains that coveted first Diploma at Lorient!
