Checkmate Fire Solutions Ltd Compliance Manager Clive Reilly is the first industry professional to have successfully passed the FDIS Diploma in Fire Doors. The Diploma is a key part of the recently launched scheme that aims to transform knowledge and understanding about the critical role of fire doors and how they save lives and protect property. Studied online at the candidate’s own pace and with an exam taken at a local test centre – the Diploma is believed to be the first of its kind in Europe.
Mr Reilly was presented with his diploma by Gary Amer, Chief Executive of the Guild of Architectural Ironmongers (GAI), which is delivering FDIS with the BWF CERTIFIRE Scheme.
“I am delighted that Clive is the first to be able to put the designation DipFD after his name to show that he has a wide knowledge of fire doors and a qualification to prove it.”
“Since Checkmate introduced a service for the maintenance and management of fire doors we have been keen to have a qualification that proved our competence in this area. Taking the FDIS Diploma confirmed we knew a lot and also enabled us to identify gaps in our knowledge to enable us to broaden our expertise which will benefit our clients.”
