Fire Damper Testing Course

City & Guilds Accredited Programme
Our Fire Damper Testing Training Course explores the relevant regulations to carry out testing and inspection safely and competently. Candidates will be trained in routine fire and smoke damper testing during this course.

Why choose HX Training for Fire Damper Testing Training?

We are proud to be the leading training providers of City & Guilds Accredited Fire Damper Training Courses having trained more than 8000 persons in the last 3 years.  The City and Guilds Accreditation is evidence that we are continually audited and reviewed externally for training quality standards.

Throughout the Fire Damper Testing Course, candidates will learn the importance of fire and smoke damper testing. This is part of a building’s fire safety and life safety measures. Furthermore, candidates will learn how to prevent the spread of smoke, which will maintain their fire safety and fire protection. These aspects require more frequent attention in preventing the spread of fire in a building.

In addition, our Fire Damper Testing Training is delivered in replica environments of fire and smoke dampers. As a result, our fire damper testing replicas will help you achieve real-life experience. This includes: gaining access through false ceilings, working at a height, complicated ductwork cleaning and more.

With 35+ years in the health and safety sector, Hydro-X works exceptionally hard to maintain the highest standards for our candidates. So you know that if you attend an HX Training course, you can rely on quality.

Practical Training: How to Carry Out Fire and Smoke Damper Testing

We believe in delivering a fire damper certification course that holds up in the real world. Because of this, we have built a practical training replica that engineers will come across while fire and smoke damper testing. Furthermore, this could also be called fire damper drop testing or fire damper inspection.

At our training centre, candidates will have hands-on access to 8 different models of fire dampers and smoke dampers. This will cover the majority of fire resistance units they will come across in the field.

These include a range of:

  • EML (Easy Maintenance Link) Fire Dampers
  • Fusible Link Fire Dampers
  • Chain Link Fire Dampers
  • Curtain (Self-Latching Cassette) Fire Dampers
  • Automatic (BMS controlled) Motorised Smoke dampers and Fire Dampers installed

After-Course Support: What Happens After You’ve Completed Fire Damper Testing Course?

Our expert trainers have many years experience in their field, in  accordance with current legal requirements (legislation) and industry technical guidance. As a result, they have the confidence and knowledge to pass on to new and experienced engineers. Additionally, we have teams of Environmental Service Engineers on hand to help.

For daily support, each candidate leaves our fire damper testing course with a 30 page workbook. They can use and review this as a resource in the future, as well as other useful handouts throughout for the responsible person and competent person.

HX Training are always happy to take a call from previous trainees. We encourage them to keep in touch for continuous professional development.
