To attend the course Fire Protection Officer, the possession of the Austrian Fire Protection Passport is required (obtained through Module 1). Attending fire department training courses does not replace the BOD course (except for training courses according to ÖBFV guidelines B-07 for company fire department commanders or according to CFPA certificate).

Basic training BSB:
Module 1 + Module 2 + Advanced Training 1)

1)Advanced Training: Extended training is mandatory for the BOD. The fire protection technology seminars (SHEVS, FACP, sprinklers, DBA, gas extinguishing systems) and use-related seminars required for the extended training of the BOD must be completed within 2 years of Module 2 and count as continuing education courses for renewal of the fire protection passport for an additional 5 years.

If the BOD does not attend a seminar required for renewal within 5 years, the validity of the fire protection pass expires and the BOD no longer fulfills the requirements for the activity of a BOD in the sense of TRVB O 119. These can only be fulfilled again by attending module 2 + required BOD technology and utilization seminars. Module 1 does not need to be renewed.
