Fire Door Inspector

Inspect fire and egress door assemblies to NFPA 80 Standard

The Door and Hardware Institute (DHI), in partnership with Intertek (Warnock Hersey Mark), has developed a comprehensive training and certification program for individuals performing inspections of swinging fire and egress doors with builders hardware. The Fire and Egress Door Assembly Inspection class (DAI 600) is designed to train inspectors in performing and documenting inspections. NFPA 80 Standard for Fire Doors and Other Opening Protectives 2007 Edition now has requirements for the ongoing annual safety inspections of fire door assemblies. NFPA 101, Life Safety Code 2009 Edition, addresses egress door annual inspections. Both standards will raise the level of life safety in buildings and structures. This program provides balance between life safety and security through annual inspections of all fire-rated door assemblies.

DHI conducts the FDAI training classes and, upon completion of the course, students are eligible to enroll in Intertek’s professional Certified Fire Door Inspector Program. This training and certification program is open to all interested parties. Log on to for more information and to register for the training classes.
