This is what participants say about us

For us, Training Base Weeze offers excellent conditions for realistic training scenarios. It is unique that large units get the chance to train without “disturbing“ the general public. But also the infrastructure for seminars such as the respiratory protection workshop and the social areas are excellent. During our trainings, we were always accompanied by competent scenario actors and security staff, which was also outstanding.
Michael Görtzen, Training manager, Fire brigade city of Duisburg, Germany
TBW’s training ground is perfect for trainings, tests and other scenarios for civil protection operations. In addition, the territory is suitable for working with rescue dogs, especially for trainings and tests concerning the rubble search and area search. Training Base Weeze thus perfectly meets our requirements.
Lars Rottenburger, Speaker medical services in civil protection, German Red Cross
Training Base Weeze meets customer requirements and the training is always well prepared. The staff is very competent and the general service is very good.

The travel worked fine, flying to Weeze made it a fairly painless trip. The rooms were fine, warm and plenty of hot water, food was generally good and the supply of water, coffee and tea was great. Having WiFi in the rooms and across the offices was excellent, really needed for the exercise. Many thanks to you and others in the team, overall it was a positive, interesting and valuable experience and I enjoyed the interaction with the participants and fellow team members immensely.

In the Netherlands there is no comparable training center for our training module “operation in urban territories”. At Training Base Weeze we can perform our training according to our needs. Furthermore the training is very close to reality.

The best thing about the Training Base in Weeze is the variety of scenarios. It prepares participants for real emergency situations. Also, the possibilities for relaxing after the training are very good.
