Safety in Fragile and Hostile Environments 

Suits all contexts and environments

We offer three tiers of Safety and Security training to suit all contexts and environments. Our SAFE and HEAT courses include modules in First Aid, and we can also offer hostile environment driver training (HEDT) if required.

In addition, we can supply on-demand bespoke security training at short notice for individuals and teams deploying to crisis areas.

We pride ourselves on delivering effective training in a supportive environment that builds skills ‘in the muscle’. Our methods work – they prepare teams and individuals for high-level performance in the most challenging environments. 

Tier 1 - Security Awareness Training (SAT)

A one day course for people travelling or deploying to countries, regions or cities that are considered to have a crime level and/or terrorist threat that is over and above that which would be expected in any Western European capital.

Tier 2 – Security Awareness in Fragile Environments (SAFE)

3 day course for those individuals deploying to countries, regions or cities that are considered to be crime-hot and/or with a significant terrorist threat e.g. Mexico City, Guatemala, Kinshasa, Khartoum, and Nairobi.

Tier 3 –Hostile Environment Awareness Training (HEAT)

5 day course for those deploying to countries, regions or cities that are considered to be conflict-hot and/or with a high terrorist threat e.g. Afghanistan, Syria, Somalia, Pakistan or Yemen.
