Basic Safety & Security Course (HEAT)

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? We believe there is another option: To react consciously, relying on your self-awareness and experience. During the Basic Course (Hostile Environment Awareness Training), you discover the tools you need to work in medium and high-risk areas.
How can you prepare yourself for dangerous situations?
Practice through hyper-realistic simulations
Safe learning environment
Anyone can take part in our training. Your personal safety and well-being are our primary concern. 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 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 (value € 99,-) 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.
