Integration courses and publicly funded courses

Since 20.08.21, the new Corona Protection Ordinance with the 3G rule has been in effect in NRW. For our BAMF-funded courses (integration courses and professional language courses), which take place in classroom form at the IIK, this means that participants must be vaccinated, recovered or tested negative.

Therefore, prior to the start of classes, the instructor must be presented with proof of full vaccination coverage, a convalescent certificate, or a negative test result that is no older than 48 hours.

We have established a hygiene concept in accordance with the official guidelines and regulations. Please always enter the building wearing a medical mouth-nose protection and adhere to the known hygiene and distance regulations.

Further important information on the subject of corona protection from the city of Düsseldorf can be found here. Multilingual information on the subject of vaccination can be found on the pages of of the federal government.

Further Education for Teachers

The pandemic poses great challenges to schools and all teachers interested in further education and training, and so does our institute. In the interests of the health of our participants and staff, to which we accord the highest priority, and in view of the fact that the pandemic situation will remain uncertain in the coming months, we have decided to postpone all attendance training events until next year 2021.

Important for all Erasmus+ scholarship holders: The European Commission has recommended to all National Agencies to extend the duration of projects by 12 months in order to allow for a smooth postponement of booked training sessions. However, please continue to take note of our on-line training courses on digital teaching DaF/DaZ 2020, which you can book on our website.

You would greatly support our work in the current situation if you were to book your 2021 training course with us now. You do not need to pay a deposit for pre-registration. If you have already received an Erasmus+ scholarship, we would of course be pleased if you could reserve your 2021 training place securely now by transferring the course fees. In the case of fully booked courses, we will allocate places in the order in which the course fees are received. In the case of last-minute changes to your plans, you can cancel your reservation free of charge up to four weeks before the course begins.

We hope for your understanding and your support and look forward to a joint training year 2021. Please continue to note our on-line training offers DaF/DaZ 2020, which you can book on our website just like the attendance training events 2021.
