Certified Fire + Egress Door Assembly Inspection Program (CFDAI)

A DHI-certified fire and egress door assembly professional has the skill and training necessary to perform a detailed inspection, ensuring fire-rated doors are code compliant.

In our continued commitment to advance the FDAI program, we are launching a new certification to help FDAIs elevate their profile to the end user and grow their inspection services.

DHI will now offer the CFDAI to all new students who pass DAI600. Current FDAIs and current Intertek IQP-certified FDAIs are invited to participate as well.

Course Outline

RECOMMENDED PREREQUISITES: COR101 – Fundamentals of Architectural Doors and Hardware  |  COR102 – Introduction To Building Codes  |  COR117 – Door, Frame, and Architectural Hardware Applications  |  COR140 – Using Codes and Standards

What Are the Additional Benefits of Becoming a CFDAI?

In addition to the opportunities of becoming certified and taking continuing education, CFDAI’s will receive a badge and digital seal as part of this new program.
