The Door & Hardware Federation has announced plans to resume its training programme in the Republic of Ireland following a two-year pause as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
In a very positive meeting held in Dublin on 28th April with
DHF head of commercial operations Patricia Sowsbery-Stevens, general manager & secretary Michael Skelding, and senior training & compliance officer Steve Hill (pictured) outlined the federation’s intention to recommence one and two-day training courses at a recent meeting held in Dublin with Ireland-based members.
Head of commercial operations Patricia Sowsbery-Stevens said : “We were delighted by the uptake of training courses in Ireland in 2019, and again in February 2020 and had planned regular events to build on this success.
However, following the onset of ‘lockdown’ in March 2020, these had to be put on hold. We are very pleased to be able to kickstart our training in Ireland once again, and following our meeting with members last month, it is evident there is a genuine enthusiasm for this.”
DHF’s offering will comprise two-day courses (which will remain as members’ private courses), and one-day courses, both of which will complement any future auditing requirements. The one-day course will once again comprise five learning modules with a short examination following each and presents examples of past failures and prosecutions, as well as giving the learner the ability to accurately conduct and document a risk assessment.
