Regular training courses for automated gates are held throughout the UK (by arrangement in Ireland) and are open to members and non-members of dhf . 

It is a condition of membership, that all dhf members who are involved with automated gates have at least one employee who has attended the Level 2 Safety + Level 4 Legislation combined course.  This means dhf Automated Gate Group member companies' personnel are trained to provide and install fully compliant gates in all environments including residential areas, industrial and commercial parks and school grounds.

It is the industry's only scheme to offer this depth of training. The dhf Automated Gate Group received advice on legal aspects from the Health & Safety Executive during the planning of the training curriculum.

The dhf training assures the customer that they have chosen a safe product from an accredited manufacturer that has been installed by a fully trained engineer. It gives the customer complete peace of mind that they have made a responsible and safe choice.
