Online training courses launched

The Door and Hardware Federation (DHF) has launched its digital training facility, enabling its audience to purchase training courses, online.

In response to the continuing Covid-19 crisis, and following government recommendations, DHF ceased its face-to-face training.

With training very much the backbone of DHF’s function, the organisation said, it has been essential to adapt to changing circumstances.

Head of commercial operations Patricia Sowsbery-Stevens said: “We have been working extremely hard behind the scenes to successfully bring online courses to the outside world and are now delighted to be able to offer these.

“Although not a total substitute for the face-to-face training courses, we are confident that the online courses will provide knowledge from all elements of the complete course and a positive, rewarding learning experience.”

For example, the one-day, Level 2 Award courses in Automated Gate and Traffic Barrier Safety and Industrial and Garage Door Safety, ideal for installers, have been filmed and edited to enable DHF to share knowledge with its learners.

Once purchased, each candidate will be able to view the units at their leisure over a 14-day access period starting from the purchase date. There are five modules in each course and these can be viewed as many times as is necessary.
