As the higher federal authority, the education center is responsible for the education and qualification process of the Bundeswehr below the ministerial level. The BiZBw is not only the central training and further education institute for civilian personnel in the Bundeswehr . It imparts economic, legal and technical expertise to all members of the Bundeswehr. It also advises all organizational areas of the Bundeswehr in matters of education, qualification and civil professional recognition of skills acquired in the Bundeswehr. In addition, the BiZBw is the central certification body for qualification processes in the Bundeswehr that can be recognized as a civil profession.


The BiZBw is organized as follows:

  • Central Affairs Department, in Mannheim
  • Department I Defense Administration, in Mannheim
  • Department II Defense Technology, in Mannheim
  • Department III School Education
    • Department III 1 in Mannheim
    • Teaching area III 2 in Berlin-Grünau
    • Teaching area III 3 in Oberammergau
    • Teaching area III 4 in Nienburg
    • Department IV Education, Qualification, Certification, in Bonn

The ten Bundeswehr technical schools and the six Bundeswehr schools abroad are not part of the BiZBw, but are subordinate to it.
