For an individual or team to safely and effectively operate in a high risk or fragile environment they must manage two main threats, the external threat to physical safety and the internal threat to their ability to function psychologically. Consequently, our syllabus includes personal and group deployment planning, threat evaluation and risk assessment; personal security and conflict management, vehicle and travel security, ballistics, mines and IED awareness, dealing with local authorities and factions, avoiding and surviving kidnap or detention, living and working in disaster areas, cyber security, and recognising and dealing with post-traumatic stress. Our medical training equips delegates to deal with a range of traumatic injuries likely in hostile environments as well as how to maintain good health and hygiene in remote or austere locations.
Many of our delegates come from journalistic or NGO backgrounds and we are happy to offer additional training which may be necessary to mitigate risk in locations they are required to visit.
