IFC training courses held in Ireland are designed to be modular, and are held over 2 days.

Day 1:
Core module:
Introduction to IFC, Building Regulations and Fire Testing. This includes examples of real fires and what went wrong! Issues are explored and explained.
Penetration sealing module:
How holes are commonly sealed in buildings, with examples.
Day 2:
Partitions module:
Fire compartmentation and lightweight systems and ceilings for fire separation.
Cavity barriers module:
Specific methods of protecting concealed spaces against the spread of fire and smoke.
Fire door module:
Concentrates mainly on timber doors as these suffer the most wear but also covers steel, aluminium and composite doors. Looks at existing doors rather than new installations, hardware, glazing and smoke / intumescent seals.

The training is independent from any 3rd party installer certification scheme. However, if training is to be undertaken in advance of the competence assessment requirement of our sister company IFC Certification Ltd Installer Scheme, then the fees for the competence assessment will be waived.

Further details of this scheme are available at
