Humanitarian workers are frequently required to operate in high-risk, hostile, and unstable environments. Without practical training, aid workers lack the practical skills to protect themselves, colleagues, and beneficiaries from violence and accidents. As a result, not only is a comprehensive HEAT training course recommended for all staff members working in such conditions, many insurers actually require it in order to provide coverage in the event of an emergency.

Participants in HDFF’s intensive 5-day HEAT course will learn how to:

  • Recognise and avoid UXO/IED’s/land mines;
  • How to prevent and respond to fires in the field;
  • To survive a Kidnapping & Hostage incident from abduction to release/rescue by force;
  • To apply life-saving techniques in a remote field environment;
  • Respond with essential survival techniques during an active shooter situation;
  • Understand best-practices for delivering aid in unstable, rapidly-evolving situations, Stay safe during outbreaks of civil unrest;
  • Behave appropriately at legal/illegal check points;
  • Enhance safety and effectiveness through knowledge of basic field navigation.

(This training is AIT Certified.)

Included: Lunch, Coffee Breaks, Certificate, and Training Materials as well as Accommodation w/breakfast, Transportation from Bangkok to Huahin (vice versa), and 1 group dinner
