Tightening of safety measures to 2G+ until 24.01.2022

Due to the current situation and developments, the IFA has decided to make 2G+ certification compulsory for the implementation of the company nurse courses. This serves to protect all participants as well as the instructors and ensures that the courses continue to be held safely. Only vaccinated and recovered persons who can also show a negative rapid antigen test result are admitted. The rapid test will be carried out at the beginning of the course and CHF 20.00 will be added to the course fee.

This tightening will be implemented up to and including 24.01.2022 and extended/loosened according to the decisions of the Federal Council and the development of the number of cases. If you are unable to attend the course due to the tightening, we kindly ask you to deregister from the course as early as possible. 

We kindly ask you to bring and show your valid certificate and official ID on the day of the course. 

The protection concept remains in place

The courses will be held in compliance with the currently valid hygiene and distance regulations. In addition, the following protective measures will be taken by the Institute of Occupational Medicine:

Certificate: There is no general extension of certificates, as participation in a course is possible for everyone in any case. The letter from the IVR dated January 2021 remains valid.

  • Before the start of the course, there will be an information session and a short questioning about the state of health. In case of symptoms, participants will be referred directly to our walk-in practice
  • Hygiene masks (FFP2), protective goggles and gloves are provided by the Institute of Occupational Medicine during the exercises. Community masks are not permitted
  • Ventilation will be omitted and not practised
  • Surfaces will be cleaned immediately with surface disinfectant if soiled

We can be reached by email at or by phone at 056 205 89 26.

IVR Validity: All First Aid certificates that expire or have expired in the period from March 1, 2020 to and including June 30, 2021 will be extended for 16 months. This applies to all First Aid levels.

Together through the crisis! We thank you for your patience and cooperation.

Course Description

The sudden occurrence of life-threatening health problems can rapidly lead to death if no immediate countermeasures are taken. The chances of survival are on the one hand dependent on the type of injury or illness, which cannot be influenced, but on the other hand on the timeframe in which the patient is “helpless”. This timeframe can only be shortened if incidental witnesses can immediately offer emergency aid thanks to their previous training. This help is limited to “life-saving emergency measures” and is independent of the cause of the health problem.

Our courses enable every person to competently carry out aid measures in emergency situations. We offer exciting, practically-based and certified SRC and IVR courses for all levels.

  • Tailored-made course offers at your company site or in our course rooms in Baden
