(5-day program) Individuals performing NFPA 80’s door safety inspections need to have a working knowledge of the fire doors they inspect, as well as the code requirements affecting them. Door Safety Inspectors (DSI) exceed NFPA’s Qualified Person standard (for NFPA 80 and NFPA 105) and NFPA 101’s Knowledgeable Person standard for inspecting and testing egress and fire door assemblies. In this course, students will learn from practicing inspectors, how to read and interpret codes and standards, inspect and test openings for compliance, maintenance and mitigation practices and procedures and more.
DSI candidates must achieve a minimum score of 80 percent on the proctored certification exam to earn the DSI certification. DSIs receive a wallet card and certificate as proof of their certification. DSI certification is valid for one year. DSIs are required to renew their certification with DoorSafety annually through continuing education.
