Welcome - we introduce ourselves
We enable operationally relevant experience to be so intensive and sustainable that fire services can successfully and safely overcome challenges with confidence. And through training and services, we are pioneering the way in saving people and animals, protecting the environment and limiting the economic consequences of incidents, even in the context of challenges in underground transport systems. We commit ourselves to this every day.
Development and organizational counselling
In addition to training emergency personnel, the International Fire Academy specialises in tactical, technical and teaching development. She advises fire services systemically and organizationally regarding the individual preparation for intervention in their tunnels.
The Intercantonal Fire Service Training Centre provides the fire service authorities of the cantons of Solothurn, Basel-Landschaft, Basel-Stadt and Jura as well as the Fire Service Coordination Switzerland and the Swiss Fire Service Association with a comprehensive training infrastructure for their courses.
Largest training centre in Switzerland
The 36 000 m2 training area with firehouses, flashover training facility, respiratory protection training parkour, extinguisher training area, classrooms, accommodation, canteen and much more offers the members of the fire services optimal training and exercising conditions.
The prerequisite for the success of knowledge-oriented companies, including in particular learning service providers, is the motivated employee and his interaction with inspiring customers and participants. The way a company behaves towards its claimants shows the importance it attaches to its values and how it consciously deals with those values.
