Environmentally conscious training
In order to protect the environment, RelyOn Nutec Fire Academy has a closed sewerage system, with its own water purification installation. The closed sewerage system prevents polluted extinguishing water from entering the soil and watercourses. The extinguished water is then purified and recycled, the quality of which is monitored on a regular basis.

The safety of students, staff and visitors is our highest priority in our modern facilities.

Occupational health and hygiene
Regarding the concerns over the occupational health and hygiene risks, in particular interior firefighting, a strict protocol to separate clean and dirty working areas has been adopted.

Safety procedures, safety information and safety awareness of our personnel all contribute to this. All possible measures are taken to contribute to environmental responsibility. Therefore, RelyOn Nutec Fire Academy trains you safely and responsible.

We offer training for:

  • Public emergency services (Fire brigades, Police, Defence, Medical Services)
  • Industry (BRZO/Seveso companies, high risk companies, tank storage)
