Description

Our Basic HEAT Course prepares you 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? We believe there is another option: to react consciously, relying on your self-awareness and experience.

How do you envision dangerous situations, and how can you prepare yourself for them? In fact, you only know how you will react once an unsafe situation actually occurs.

During our Basic HEAT Course (Hostile Environment Awareness Training), you discover the tools you need to work in medium and high-risk areas. The course is based on practical exercises and realistic simulations.

Practice through hyper-realistic simulations:

We believe in the power of simulation. Our specialists offer you the opportunity to respond to threatening situations in a safe learning environment. These simulated exercises are so realistic that you will feel they are really happening. You will learn your own instinctive responses.

Our experienced trainers and professional actors provide you with the tools with which you can react to these situations. From day one, you’ll be immersed in a realistic storyline. During the HEAT training, you are part of a team that is on a mission in a dangerous country.

While travelling through this country, you’ll be exposed to dangerous situations. Together, we navigate these situations and through practice learn how to manage them.

Safe learning environment:

Anyone can take part in our training. Your personal safety and well-being are our primary concerns. Before and during the course, you can share prior experiences with the trainers or the host. They can discreetly adapt the course for you to make sure this will be the best and safest learning experience you have ever had.

Because there is a host present at the course (apart from the trainers) we make sure you can take a time-out whenever you need one. Out of the situation and the group, the host is able to support you. The trainers and host support you in your learning process. If you need extra personal guidance, there is time for additional support.

Your own professional medical kit and instruction cards:

During the module “Medical Accident Control” our specialists teach you to use a professional medical kit specifically designed for remote areas. You will receive this medical kit for free to bring home and on your travels.

At the end of each segment of the HEAT training, you will receive an instruction card with a summary of everything you have learned. The instruction cards are waterproof, so they are handy and practical for carrying in the field.

Breakdown of time: 30% theory, 30% practice, 40% simulations

Group size: maximum 14 (during simulations maximum of 7)

Dietary wishes: vegetarian/vegan/halal/other meals

Certification: on completion of the course you will receive a HEAT certificate.

Keep your training up to date: we ensure that your training stays current by offering you a free e-learning programme after one year.
