    The training center, AFZ, maintains a hotel with an integrated restaurant. We were guests in the house for the Long Night of Comedy for the first time. The rooms are suitable, but should be used more optimally. The event was well attended. The service was consistently friendly.
    There is sufficient parking space.

    The building is very nice but unfortunately I can't really say much good about my time there. Because I felt like most people didn't care how I felt or what I wanted. One story in particular sticks in my mind: I was in the kitchen and the cook who was responsible for me clearly had a problem with me. For example, I was supposed to cut onions into cubes, which wasn't a problem, but he first told me that he wanted slices and he yelled at me and didn't even let me explain it and the carers said when I asked them for help that I should do it too to the cook on my own, but he told me clearly that he didn't give a shit what I wanted, so I had no one who wanted to help me and so I ended the measure and afterwards the AFZ only told lies to my clerk from the job center.

    A very exciting and, above all, intensive week, I didn't want to leave on Saturday. Arne is a top trainer with the perfect mix of relaxedness and seriousness and, above all, is very professional and explained everything very well. The lessons were very exciting and exciting, so that you hardly had to study for the final test on Saturday, as everyone had done a great job during the week.
    The practical days with the drill, swimming and fire course were the highlight.
    Canteen food can be improved, but since we got a free meal card every day, we can't complain here either.

    I was in March for the refresher course at the AFZ Rostock. Unfortunately, I got Corona on site with pretty severe side effects. I was quickly and easily provided with a Covid test and given a food pack to be on the safe side. I could hardly eat anything, but I think this initiative is simply wonderful. Everything important was taken care of by the AFZ and I was able to leave to recover at home. Whether kitchen, reception or school management, I felt very well treated and can only pass on positive things! Many thanks to the AFZ team!

    I took the Basic Safety course here at the end of March and was very satisfied.
    Very modern and well-equipped training rooms. The instructors made the lessons very relaxed but the seriousness was never lost. You can tell that the trainers have a lot of experience and knowledge that they are happy to pass on. They try as much as possible not to let the training days go on too long. However, I think you could plan a little differently, for example, if possible, do the first aid part during the week so that everyone could leave on Friday. Many people would have been willing to make a long day out of my course and be able to leave a day earlier. A small suggestion for improvement concerns the password assignment when completing the test. It's best to sign the passwords for everyone at the same time so everyone can start together. The individual password assignment caused unrest because one part was already in the middle of the questions and the other part was still waiting for the password.
    The food on site was delicious and there was always a lot to choose from to suit every taste. The breakfast was also simple, but had everything you needed and was very nicely prepared, and was always quickly topped up.
    I was lucky enough to be able to stay overnight on site. The rooms are very clean and spacious. Nothing more is necessary since you were in class all day anyway or were out and about with the people from the course.
    Finally, you can say that the staff on site: reception, restaurant and HSK were also very nice and helpful.

    Keep it up with two thumbs up

    I took an STCW basic course in shipping at the AFZ and the 6 days were absolutely fantastic!
    The two lecturers Anna and Inge were absolutely friendly, motivated and gave a lot of interesting insider information. The course material was peppered with many exciting practical experiences, some in the harbor basin, the office was always a help in spontaneous crises, the food in the canteen was good and the accommodation (B&B) with organic breakfast was fantastic.
    Everything went smoothly, including planning and execution.
    I'm absolutely thrilled. Thanks!!!

    I really have a hard time with "bad" ratings, but in this case I unfortunately have no other choice.
    In 2019 I registered for the advanced training course for real estate specialists at the AFZ.

    Here are a few points that were not only unsatisfactory for me, but also for other course participants and were therefore not conducive to passing the final exams:

    - Constant changes in the timetable - no timely information about which lessons take place when
    - Spontaneous relocation of the exam preparation week from 02/22/2021-02/26/2021 to 03/01/2021-03/05/2021
    - Change of the teacher for the subject "KLR", without prior information to the course participants
    - Poor communication during corona lockdown
    (school failure)
    - No reimbursement of contribution costs for lost hours due to corona lockdown
    - Distance teaching without prior delivery of the teaching material
    - Access to the learning network only worked to a limited extent or not at all for some students

    The course cost us all a lot of money and, of course, time... It's just a shame if the learning success suffers as a result of the aforementioned circumstances!

    We made the big mistake and didn't look at the canteen's prices beforehand! But honestly, €8.90 for lunch in the canteen of an AfZ! 8.90€ for a good Coron bleu, but also 8.90€ for lukewarm frozen vegetables, boiled potatoes that didn't taste like anything and a dessert for Attention, here we go, FROM 1.50€, there is still a lot of air up! Therefore only 2 stars...

    The training and further education center Rostock GmbH offers all sorts of opportunities that are not even apparent at first glance. On the one hand, it offers various funding opportunities in the area of ​​training and further education. Projects that support orientation on the job market or the search for apprenticeships are also supported by specialist staff. The good location clearly plays a role here. Located directly on the Warnow, this building scores points when it comes to treating yourself to a beautiful view during breaks or while eating.
    There is an in-house restaurant with a variety of dishes to choose from. There is something for many, even if the vegan options are a bit lacking. I think that the kitchen here is also working flat out to stay on the ball.
    There is also a hotel in the building.
    All in all, there is almost nothing left to be desired here.
    The AFZ Rostock is definitely worth a visit!

    So in the beginning BVB went well ... But after a while you realize how inconsistent everything is?.!

    One says that, one says the other and in the end you as a participant are the one who was messed about :)

    So ... there really has to be more team play ... Urgent.

    Course was just bad. For that it should be a further training, I had the impression that the lecturers themselves were unsure. Partly also incorrectly conveyed. "Certificates" are thrown afterwards. Aborting was the only right decision. Shame on us money

    I'm here for the 2nd time, Basic Safety 3 years ago, now Advanced Firefighting and both Rescue Boat courses, I can only report good things like 3 years ago. Top instructors, friendly staff, good restaurant in the building. Above all, efforts are made to keep the equipment up to date and invest a lot of money in new teaching aids. Definitely a good address for seafarers from the Northern Germany region!

    Habe dort einen Vorbereitungslehrgang für die Abschlussprüfung zum Kfm. Speditions und Logistikdienstleistung gebucht.

    Nachdem der erste Termin verschoben wurde, wurde der 2 dan 5 Tage vorher ersatzlos gestrichen.

    Herbe Enttäuschung, und das obwohl ich dort mit anderen Bildungsangeboten schon über 5000 € gelassen habe.

    Für mich und meinen Kollegen ein Tiefschlag der gesessen hat.

    Ich kann nach solch Kundenschädlichem Verhalten von diesem Träger in Zukunft leider nur abraten.
