Accreditation as a rescue training organisation

Update in progress

Only accredited organisations may provide rescue training courses equivalent to the training provided by the National Institute for Rescue Training (Institut national de formation des secours - INFS).

This accreditation is issued by the Minister in charge of the rescue services. The latter is responsible for monitoring and checking whether the activities of the accredited training body are compliant with the Grand-Ducal Regulation.

Who is concerned

Any training organisation other than the INFS must obtain accreditation to provide training.

How to proceed

Filing an application

The training organisation concerned can submit an application for accreditation to the Minister electronically using an electronic document exchange platform. To do so, the training organisation must inform the Department of Civil Security of the Ministry of Home Affairs by sending an e-mail to as soon the application is complete and ready for transmission.

The form must contain the following information:

  • the training courses offered (compliant with the INFS training programme) and the evaluation methods;
  • the trainer(s) and their respective education and experience. The trainer(s) must present a certificate or diploma issued by the CGDIS confirming their aptitude as a trainer, or a certificate or diploma recognised as equivalent;
  • the target audience;
  • the means of certifying participation;
  • the internal organisation.

Supporting documents

The organisation must also attach:

  • an up-to-date version of their articles of association;
  • an extract from the Trade and Companies Register (Registre de commerce et des sociétés - RCS);
  • a third-party liability insurance certificate.

Incomplete applications will not be processed.


The Minister will respond within 3 months of receipt of the application.

Accreditation takes the form of a ministerial order indicating the accredited training courses and the accreditation number.


The accreditation is non-transferable and must be posted at the registered office of the training organisation.

The accreditation must appear on all correspondence for course participants or the public.

The accredited training organisation commits to:

  • ensuring the proper functioning and provision of the training courses for which accreditation has been requested;
  • having the necessary technical and pedagogical materials for the training courses for which accreditation has been requested;
  • having a sufficient number of trainers for a satisfactory conduct of the training courses organised;
  • having an adequate infrastructure for conducting trainings;
  • complying with the standards for positions, activities and skills approved by the CGDIS board of directors;
  • sending an annual report of activities showing the number of participants and the number of training certificates issued to the Minister by the 3rd month following the end of the past year at the latest.

In the event failure to comply with these obligations, the Minister may suspend or revoke his decision.

The accredited organisation must inform the Minister of any change in the information provided without delay when submitting the application for initial accreditation or application for renewal.


The validity period of the accreditation is 5 years, renewable.

The organisation must send an application for renewal to the Minister 6 months before the expiry date of the current accreditation using a specific form.

The application for renewal must be made in the same way as the initial application.
