The interactive advanced training system for the federal administration

The IFOS -BUND ® system

IFOS -BUND ® is the interactive advanced training system for the federal administration.

We designed this system with the aim of working with our clients better and more easily and to enhance the quality of advanced training.

The system is based on Internet technologies. All federal authorities and their staff now have access to the latest information about courses offered by the Federal Academy of Public Administration (BAköV) and other federal training institutions.

IFOS -BUND ® is an interactive communication platform for everyone involved in the process of advanced training.

The system offers documents and links on the topic of advanced training, as well as up-to-date, time-saving booking options. Individual authorities can set up interfaces with other systems (such as personnel information systems and in-house workflows) in order to link their various in-house channels for gaining approval with IFOS -BUND ®.

You can find IFOS -BUND ® at (in German only).

How to find BAköV course offerings

All BAköV seminars are listed in IFOS -BUND ® under the heading “Training course offerings”.

This leads to a search page where users can search for specific courses. For a quick overview, click on the “Search” button. This will bring up a list of all BAköV training courses offered.

You can also conduct an expanded search.


Registering for a seminar

Only federal employers may take part in BAköV courses.

BAköV accepts applications only from those responsible for advanced training at the authorities which have the right to submit applications for training courses. For more information, please contact the unit within your authority which is responsible for advanced training.

Using IFOS -BUND ®, you can indicate your interest in a training course. The form will then be sent automatically to the authority responsible for submitting an application.

Please note: Indicating your interest in a course is not the same as registering with BAköV!

After you have been registered, you will be sent an invitation.
