BAZ Berufskraftfahrerausbildungszentrum Kepp based in Bergkamen, Hagen and Hamm uses two Setra buses for driver training. Allgäu Akademie Wild GmbH in Bad Wurzach and BAZ Berufskraftfahrerausbildungszentrum Kepp in North Rhine Westfalia's Bergkamen teach trainee drivers in buses from the Setra TopClass and MultiClass range. An S 415 LE business from the MultiClass range and an S 515 HD from the ComfortClass range are used to train bus drivers for regular service routes and touring coaches. Owner Michael Kepp consistently provides participants in his training programmes with new, top-quality vehicles which are equipped with state-of-the-art driver assistance systems. In addition to theoretical and practical learner driver instruction and driving instructor training for all driving licence categories, the company also offers training and advanced training courses on warehousing, logistics and transport.

With the help of a new S 515 HDH at Allgäu Akademie Wild GmbH, trainee drivers can familiarise themselves with state-of-the-art driver assistance systems from the very start of their training. These include the anticipatory cruise control "Predictive Powertrain Control" (PPC) with topography detection, Lane Keeping Assist, Attention Assist and the world's first emergency braking system for buses.

The air conditioning system on the 51-seater S 515 HDH bus is equipped with the latest active filters. The system developed by Daimler Buses features an anti-viral functional layer and filters out the finest of aerosols from the air, thereby reducing their concentration. The three-axle vehicle is also used by the Academy for further training courses on efficient and safer driving, for tourist trips and rental purposes.

Omnibusbetrieb Wild, a bus transport operator, started using Setra buses in the 1960s. Seven years ago the long-established company merged with the Wild driver training school to become Allgäu Akademie Wild GmbH. The modern training centre is situated in Bad Wurzach. This is also the location of the new touring coach that Peter Wild has invested in despite the Covid-19 crisis: "For me it is important to act anti-cyclically and to look ahead. One thing I know for sure: bus travel will soon take off again."
