Training dates: January 10, 11, 12 – 2022
This training on personal security in the humanitarian sector, developed by OTHER SOLUTIONS, has a simple main objective: to provide participants with a set of tools to prepare them effectively to manage their personal security in the field. It aims to train humanitarian staff deployed in high-risk or isolated areas, in order to increase their awareness and preparedness, and to enable them to assist beneficiaries while ensuring their own safety.
This training is 70% practical and 30% theoretical.
More specifically, it aims to provide:
Awareness of practical realities
Knowledge of basic tools
Know-how through the acquisition of skills, to manage their personal security abroad in the context of aid operations.
These 3 components are used under the international acronym AKS (Awareness, Knowledge, Skills).
Components of the training:
To achieve these objectives, the training consists of four mutually reinforcing components:
Theoretical sessions, aimed at consolidating methods (pre-departure checklist, do’s and don’ts in violent situations, etc.);
Practical sessions, aimed at training in essential basic practices (first aid, radio protocols, etc.);
Simulations, aimed at crystallizing the use of the above-mentioned methods and practices in a tangible setting;
Validation and feedback sessions (debriefings and key lessons learned).
Different types of pedagogical tools and resources can be associated with these components.
