The International Fire Code requires annual visual inspection of all fire-resistance-rated assemblies and the protection features – firestopping included. Fire doors can be the entry to building owners to help them satisfy the annual visual inspection requirement in NFPA 80 and the International Fire Code.

To ‘get you in the door,’ FCIA announced a new partnership with the Door Opening Industry Training Group. DOIT provides discounts for FCIA members to learn about how to inspect fire doors in new and existing buildings.

DOIT Courses include:

  • Qualified Fire Door Inspector Training and Certification.
  • Opening Industry Bootcamp.
  • Building a Code Foundation.

Once you are in the door, an existing building survey for firestopping, fire dampers and fire resistance-rated walls and floors can be presented, helping building owners and managers comply with the International Fire Code (annual visual inspection), NFPA 1 (high-rise every three years), and NFPA 101 (maintain protection) requirements.

Don’t miss out. The next course is March 27-30 in Charlotte, North Carolina. Show the DOIT team your FCIA membership and get the discount for your staff’s Qualified Fire Door Inspector Training and Certification Program.
