Training is essential before travelling to medium- or high-risk areas. Through a skill-based learning approach, our training equips the participant with a number of practical tools to mitigate risks and deal with critical situations, should they occur. Based on more than 15 years of training experience, we have developed a number of courses – each respectively developed for either medium- or high-risk areas. However, if none of the below fit your needs, read more about our tailored courses at the bottom.
All of our awareness training security courses are offered as open courses or as closed courses delivered exclusively when and where requested.
HOSTILE ENVIRONMENT AWARENESS TRAINING – HEAT
Our HEAT is developed for high-risk destinations. Through a combination of theory, group work, skill-stations and simulated exercises, this course provides the participant with all the tools necessary for travelling in high-risk areas. Much of the training goes into the elements of planning a trip, as this provides the best basis for avoiding known risks. However, through the use of role-players and simulation, we also teach the participants how to deal with difficult and critical situations – should they occur.
Time is a scarce resource. That’s why our HEAT is conducted as a 3-day course as opposed to 4 or 5 days. Nevertheless, our extensive experience and special course design ensures that the content and output are the same, if not better than, longer courses. We believe this makes it easier for you to send valued employees on training, allowing for enhanced flexibility in a busy schedule.

The HEAT Refresher is a 2-day course designed for individuals who have undertaken HEAT within the last 3 years. The course aims to refresh and restore memory of the tools from a full HEAT, thus enabling for an enlargement of acquired knowledge. To ensure a common baseline for learning, participants must present a valid HEAT-certificate issued within the last 3 years.
This 8-hour course is designed for medium-risk destinations and includes a number of easily applicable tools that can be used both by individual travellers and groups. The course consists of a blend of theory and practical exercises. The course is delivered by a senior instructor with extensive experience within travel security. It is in some ways similiar to security guard training.
