Description

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.

Topics covered:

  • Personal safety
  • Preparation of the mission
  • First aid
  • Communications
  • Threats when travelling in vehicles
  • Orientation
  • Personal risk assessment
  • Incident reports
  • Hibernation, evacuation, relocation
  • Sexual violence
  • Weapons in the field
  • Hostage situation and kidnapping
  • Managing with aggressive behaviour
  • Operations (example of food distribution)

Upon completion of the training and successful completion of all modules, participants will be awarded 3 certificates:

  • Highfield Training Certificate (https://www.highfieldqualifications.com/)
  • EFR – Emergency First Response Certificate (www.emergencyfirstresponse.com)
  • OTHER SOLUTIONS HPass Badge PFST
