DHF (Door & Hardware Federation) has created a new commercial department, established to support the organisation’s on-going growth, and in particular, its training progranmmes.

Marketing manager, Patricia Sowsbery-Stevens (pictured), has been promoted to the post of commercial manager, and will oversee the new department’s development, with an emphasis on streamlining training course booking processes and delivering the very best service and value to its members.

With responsibility for overseeing both marketing and training functions, she has worked at DHF for three years, and is being tasked with taking the trade association’s training department ‘to the next level’, including offering online booking facilities for all training courses and ensuring that new entrants into the industry are presented with the opportunity to become proficient with the necessary accreditations, qualifications, such as NVQ, and CSCS cards.

“Training remains one of DHF’s biggest growth areas,” she said. “The creation of a new commercial department will enable us to co-ordinate and restructure our training offering to ensure our programmes continue to provide both members and non-members with the support, technical expertise, information and knowledge they need to operate in their chosen sector, successfully and compliantly.

”Currently, DHF has four training courses on offer: the well-established two-day diploma courses for Automated Gates and Industrial & Garage Doors, the one-day Industrial & Garage Door Certificate course, and now the recently-launched one-day Automated Gate Safety certificate course. Additionally, DHF will continue to work with BRE on the Fire Door Inspection training courses. I am delighted to have been given the opportunity to develop this department and look forward to a new and exciting chapter in DHF’s continuing expansion.”
