On behalf of approx. 80 shipping companies and companies in the maritime industry, we carry out courses in rescue and fire prevention as well as in metalworking in education and training.

AFZ Aus- und Fortbildungszentrum Rostock GmbH reviews as published on Google:
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, didn't want to leave on Saturday. Arne is a top trainer with the perfect mix of relaxed and serious and above all 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 throughout the week.
The practical days with the drill, swimming and fire course were the highlight.
Canteen food could be improved, but since we got a meal card every day for free, you can't complain here either.
GWO-KURSE. The trainers are very professional and highly qualified.
It is the second year that I visit the ISC Training, I hope to continue doing my GWO courses here.
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 did the Basic Safety course here at the end of March and was very satisfied.
Very modern and well-equipped training rooms. The trainers made the lessons very relaxed, but the seriousness was never lost. You can tell that the trainers bring a lot of experience and knowledge with them, which they are happy to pass on. They try as best as possible not to let the training days go too long. Nevertheless, 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 would have been willing to make my course a long day and to be able to leave a day earlier. A small suggestion for improvement concerns the assignment of a password at the end of the test. It is best to sign the passwords for everyone at the same time so everyone can start together. The individual password assignment caused unrest because some were already in the middle of the questions and the other part was still waiting for the password.
The food on site was super delicious and there was always a lot of choice for every taste. The breakfast was also simple but with everything you need and very nicely arranged, and it was always quickly refilled.
I was lucky enough to be able to stay overnight. The rooms are very clean and spacious. You don't need more because you've been in class all day anyway or you've been out and about with the people from the course.
Finally, one can say that the employees on site: reception, restaurant and HSK were very nice and helpful.
Keep it up 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
- 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 Advanced Training Center Rostock GmbH offers all sorts of opportunities that are not obvious 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 labor market or in the search for apprenticeships are also supported by specialist staff here. The good location clearly plays into the cards. Located directly on the Warnow, this building scores 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 fall a bit short. I think that here, too, the kitchen is working flat out to stay on the ball.
In addition, there is also a hotel in the building.
All in all, almost nothing is left to be desired.
The AFZ Rostock is definitely worth a visit!
I only come every 5 years, but it's always fun. And besides, there is professional training.
Great lecturers. Relaxed atmosphere without stress. My recommendation.
Always the same pudding for 6 decades schüsch
Was at the Basic Safety course. Really well done! Good balance between theory and practice. Thanks to Marco, Dirk and everyone else! Keep it up!!!
Very nice care. Very good food The food tasted very good.
The best training center I've ever been to! Lecturers are motivated and you can tell that they have an idea of what they are doing. Super delicious food and everyone is very friendly. I'd love to come back!
Anna is the best instructor ever!
It was very pleasant to get to know her ....
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.
Great educational institution. Have attended several courses here. The lecturers are very competent, the concept is consistent. Good location.
All dishes are freshly prepared there.
We look forward to eating healthy and good every day. The staff is very friendly and the highlights are the desserts. Keep up the good work.
It was a great course for supervisors. Delicious rolls in the coffee shop.
As always, everything was great.
Excellent location directly on the water and the port area - the learning material & core material is conveyed well and consists of a good mix of theoretical / practical implementation. All in all, you are very well looked after. The courses are very well supervised by the trainers and lecturers. A lot of good equipment is available for practice ... especially boating
Everything great! Lunch tastes good as always!
2nd time offshore training done with. Great team. I'm looking forward to the next time when the new hall is finished. Nice practical exercises.
The level of the education center is high . But I have spend the night in their hotel and over all the conditions ware good but there was no heating in the room at all and for the mid of January this is not acceptable !!
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
Good courses and competent staff
Super Ausbildungszentrum , sehr kompetente Lehrkräfte
Nice as always
Organized, nice trainers, everything was fine
Well-kept environment nice staff.
The refresher is relaxed & educational.
Due to Covid19, there is a mask requirement in the entire house.
Super Ausbildung, fachliche Erklärung.
Preiswerter und guter Mittagstisch
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!
Sehr kompetente Ausbildung
Leckeres Essen, schönes und sauberes Hotel & die lustigsten Lehrer. Dankeschön!
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.
Sehr gute Ausbildung, Anleitung und Beratung sowie gutes regionales Essen
Das Essen ist sehr lecker.
Bestimmte Leute in der Gastronomie hätten uns Sachen noch besser und ordentlicher erklären oder zeigen können! ( Deshalb nur 2 Sterne)
Meine Bewertung ist für die Ecke der Ausbildung Hotelfachmann , sprich Koch , Kellner und Hotel . Einfach unterirdisch...
War zum Basic Safety Training da...
Der Unterrichtsraum war Top, die Verpflegung war richtig gut..
Ein Stern Abzug gibt es für den Arroganten "Lehrer" den wir hatten.
