Project for mapping informal training amongst rescue organisations

Handling of crisis in the civilian field has nowadays more focus on public administration and rescue organisations which means altered tasks for the firemen. One problem is that the rescue parties now meet an increasing demand for activity of a kind for which they not always have adequate competence.

To maintain a high level of competence, the main target of this project is to lift forward non-formal training which now is established within the various rescue organisations. The European Commission’s memorandum gives example of three categories of learning; formal, non-formal and informal.

Non-formal learning is usually organised locally as training courses, personal-learning most of which persons are well aware of regardless of how it has been learnt.


Future goal

A digital data bank containing a large collection of techniques and working methods, with a common standard.


If an accident occurs, which requires a participation of several fire brigades; it might well happen that the result will be less satisfactory as there are differences between stations in approaching the accident. This again could jeopardize safety both for personnel and third party. Considering the differences which are now obvious, the national co-operation and the over-the-border work within the Nordic countries, it is clear that the intentions from EU for free labour movements are obstructed.


There is a considerable demand for both national and international co-ordination for the methods now used by the rescue-organisations and we strongly recommend all national parties to disseminate knowledge to the Nordic countries and together with them apply for a continuation i.e. in the form of a Nordic evolutionary system.


Future goal

A virtual meeting place for common training and practice.

Kartläggning av räddningstjänstens icke-formella utbildningar för Island, Finland och Sverige.


Syftet med kartläggningen har varit att identifiera och sammanställa den kompetensutveckling som finns

och idag är olika mellan stationerna.


Att arbeta inom räddningstjänsten kräver ständig förnyelse av kunskaper inom alla områden.

Därför har det varit viktigt att kartlägga realkompetensen hos de nordiska brandmännen.
