This training has been developed by humanitarian specialists for humanitarian workers. It will enable participants to anticipate travel and better prepare for their trip at all levels (equipment, material, psychological and technical), to increase their knowledge and control of the vehicle as well as to manage emergency situations and apply first aid techniques.

The aim of this driving level 1 training is to provide organisations with high-quality participatory driving training for passengers and drivers. It aims to increase staff confidence in order to ensure better preparation, reduce the likelihood of incidents, while teaching controlled reactions to follow in the event of an incident. This course teaches you the steps and techniques for managing emergencies and life-threatening situations.
