Description

Our Hostile Environment Awareness Training (HEAT) is a 3-day, residential course, designed for those who contribute to the world in challenging, remote, or hostile regions. In areas of poor governance, conflict, and natural disasters or facing threats of war, crime and conflict can result in real danger and medical facilities can be few, substandard, or remote.

HEAT participants learn to recognize, assess and avoid or handle risks. Should an incident occur, they are trained to respond according to best practices in the field that optimize and promote the likelihood of a positive outcome. The course is designed to be safe, encouraging and enjoyable, combining practical challenges with relevant theory. Our certified trainers support and coach participants during the training as well as the period after. This rounded approach enables you to apply learned objectives into daily practice.

TOPICS COVERED
Mission preparations and disaster preparedness
Medical accident response
Performance under pressure/stress management skills
Risk-reducing behavior regarding crime, corruption and other situations
Communication skill-building
Weapon awareness
Gender-specific risks
Handling detentions, kidnappings, and interrogations

DURATION
3 days

CUSTOMIZATION
As every organization and mission is unique, the risks and required skills for staff vary. Next to our fixed trainings, we support organizations in specific questions that are not covered in regular security courses, or require such confidentiality that sharing the courses with other organizations is not an option. Tell us what you require. We are confident that we can be of full service to your specific needs.

Price, duration, and location upon request.
