Training overview

dhf is committed to raising standards by providing a suite of training programmes that provide delegates with a greater understanding of legislation affecting supply, installation, maintenance and repair relevant to the industry.

COVID-19 Notice

In view of the current situation regarding the Coronavirus/COVID-19, dhf has put several procedures in place with immediate effect for the safety of our students and staff, as well as their familes and loved ones. Of primary concern to those wishing to book dhf training is that we have suspended all training until at least the start of April. More information can be found here. Please see below to book onto the dhf Distance Learning Programme, which is the only way to receive training from dhf during this time.

Book dhf safety training with the Distance Learning Programme

An ideal way to obtain safety training if unable to travel or attend classroom courses, the dhf Distance Learning Programme (DLP) offers 1 & 2-day training courses that match our face-to-face courses, including the option to add accreditation to one or both days. Training delegates can learn at their own pace through professionally edited videos, engage with dhf trainers in individual 1-to-1 sessions and take their exam online. Find out more about the Distance Learning Programme here.
