COVID-19 Conduct of courses and validity period certificates, as of September 16, 2021.

According to the latest COVID-19 regulation we inform you about the following changes:

Conducting courses on the premises of the educational institution: from now on, the certificate requirement will apply to events held indoors. Since continuing education events are treated as events, a valid Covid certificate is now required here. The measure is limited until January 24, 2022. 

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

Temporary regulation: As it is currently difficult to get an appointment for a test, we offer to perform an antigen rapid test at the beginning of the course. The test is free of charge for course participants (without QR code and without written proof). 

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.


Corona protection concept

The exemption for face-to-face classes remains in place. It remains a prerequisite for the admissibility of face-to-face classes that physical presence is mandatory.The courses will be held in compliance with the currently applicable hygiene and distance regulations. In addition, the following safeguards will be provided by the Institute of Occupational Medicine:

  • Prior to the start of the course, there will be an information session and a brief health interview, as well as the measurement of body temperature. In case of increased temperature and/or symptoms, the participants will be referred directly to our walk-in practice.
  • Hygiene masks (FFP2), protective goggles and gloves are mandatory to wear during the exercises. Community masks are not permitted. The material will be provided by the Institute of Occupational Medicine

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
  • Establishing of paramedic rooms to suit your needs
  • Consultation for acquiring first aid material
  • Implementation of the Maternity Protection Act
  • We offer all courses worldwide
