Rolling Steel Fire Door Technical Certification

There are no restrictions on who may install or service a fire door. That does not mean that technician expertise isn't an essential element of a safely and properly functioning fire door. IDEA has established a program to validate the credentials of individuals who have experience and skills in the installation and service of Rolling Steel Fire Doors.

Product Description

Fire doors are an important component to public safety. These products are specifically designed to protect property and minimize damage resulting from accidental fires. This essential safety feature, when properly installed and maintained, not only reduces financial loss in the event of a fire emergency, it also protects lives.

Technician expertise is an essential element of a safely and properly functioning fire door. The Institute of Door Dealer Education and Accreditation* has established a program to validate the credentials of individuals who have experience and skills in the installation and service of Rolling Steel Fire Doors.

Eligible technicians are those who:

  • Have two or more years field experience installing and servicing rolling steel fire doors
  • Are verified by an IDEA-Sanctioned Trainer to be qualified to install and service rolling steel fire doors
  • Can meet a points-based system for documenting field experience requirements

In addition to meeting the qualifying criteria, applicants must successfully pass a written examination based on a comprehensive study guide published by IDEA. Applicants should be advised that the Rolling Steel Fire Door Technician Certification examination is based on a high degree of difficulty and is designed to validate exceptional expertise rather than fundamental knowledge. Upon completing all of these steps and passing the written examination, the applicant is awarded the designation Certified Rolling Steel Fire Door Technician.
