Together with their Belgian partner Campus Vesta Forth Global have organised HEAT courses consisting of 5 days for the last 6 years, mainly for a specific Governmental Institution. But from now on, these HEAT courses are open for all organisations. Their HEAT training courses teach you how you can safely travel and work abroad, particularly in high-risk areas, such as Africa, South America, Asia, the Middle East, or Eastern Europe.

Their 5 day HEAT course teaches you how you can safely travel & work in challenging & hostile environments, focusing on daily safety & security issues as well as preparation and strategies. They train from a non-militaristic, human approach. In addition, they bring together practice and theory in role playing and simulations. This approach makes their training accessible, lively, practical and directly applicable. Personal safety and risk avoidance in their training comes first.

Experience shows that practical training is the best way of learning!


Personal safety when working abroad is an ability you can train. Are you alert in high-risk areas? What is your reaction towards aggression? How do you travel safely? What do you do when you need medical help urgently?

The purpose of the training is gaining awareness, recognition and, if possible, the prevention of dangerous and un-wanted situations. Gaining insight in security strategies and planning is key. Forth Global also teach you what to do, or not to do, if something does happen. With the help of specialised trainers and actors, experts in the field of aggression or certain disciplines, they work with roleplay, best practices and simulations.


Forth Global focus on attitude, behaviour, awareness, and experience instead of instruction, drills, or rote learning. All their trainers follow the same approach. During the course, they will make you aware of your behaviour and its impact in different high impact situations. You will learn how behaviour influences both people and situations.

Their aim is to make you aware and feel secure when you travel and work in hostile environments.
