Description

Be prepared for travelling and working in dangerous areas!

After a long flight, you arrive at your hotel. You step out of the taxi, turn around and are confronted with a weapon. The robber is shouting at you. What do you do? Fight, flee or freeze?

CSD believe there is another option: to react consciously, relying on your self-awareness and experience. During the Basic HEAT Course (Hostile Environment Awareness Training), you discover the tools you need to work in medium and high-risk areas.

Why choose a Basic HEAT Course?

CSD believe in the power of simulation

Their team of trainers and actors offer you the chance to respond to life-threatening situations in a safe learning environment. These simulated exercises are so realistic that you will feel they are really happening. You will learn about your instinctive responses and how to control them.

Safe learning environment

Your personal safety and well-being are the primary concern. CSD have a team of professionals to make sure this will be the best and safest learning experience you ever had. If you need extra personal guidance, there is time and professional staff for additional support.

Personal medical kit and instructions cards

During the module “Medical Accident Control” their specialists teach you to use a professional medical kit specifically designed for remote areas. You will receive this medical kit (value € 99,-) for free to bring home and on your travels.
