The Fire Door Awareness

The Fire Door Awareness course is delivered through NOCN SiteRight, certificates are for CPD use and is delivered to both fitters and supervisors or other office staff who may be involved in the fitting of fire doors.

The course is the same for both, but is delivered to different groups of either fitters or supervisors, so that the relevant point that each require are discussed.

The supervisors will only need the awareness course, unless they will be fitting fire doors as well, the fitters then have the option of being assessed on-site, fitting a complete fire door set and this is marked against NVQ criteria and is certificated by NOCN. This certificate can be added to any CSCS card and provides the proof of competence of the fitters when required.

  • The course content includes:

    1. The role of timber fire door assemblies and door sets and why it is important that they are installed correctly
    2. Understanding how fire door assemblies and door sets work and their place in the wider passive fire protection system
    3. Legislation and guidance associated with fire door assemblies and door sets
    4. Considerations before installing fire door assemblies and door sets
    5. Considerations when installing fire door assemblies and door sets
    6. Considerations on completion of the installation of fire door assemblies and door sets.

    The course content is the same for both supervisors and fitters, the difference is the delivery of the course.

    The course for the fitters will concentrate on the parts of the course that are important for the fitters to know and understand what is required from them to complete the fitting of a compliant fire door set and will prepare them for the second part of the course, if required, the on-site assessment of them fitting a complete door set, to compliant standards. This will provide the evidence of proof of competence if required under any audit system.

    The course for the supervisors, will concentrate on;

    1. The planning of the work
    2. Site surveys
    3. Ordering of materials
    4. Checking compatibility and traceability
    5. Door registers/schedules
    6. Maintenance logs
    7. Inspection logs
    8. Audit trails and Quality assurance checks
