Hostile environment awareness training – 3 days (HEAT)

Our Hostile environment awareness training  is a 3-day, residential course designed for those who contribute to the world in challenging, remote or hostile regions. In areas of poor governance, conflict, natural disaster and war threats like crime and conflict can result in real dangers and medical facilities can be few, poor and far between.

HEAT participants learn to recognize, assess and avoid or handle, risks. Should incidents happen, they’re trained to respond according to best practices in the field that optimise the likelihood of a positive outcome. The course is designed to be safe, encouraging and enjoyable combining practical challenges with relevant theory. Our certified trainers do support and coach participants during the training and in the period following this training. This supports you in transferring the learned into daily practice.

The subjects we cover:

  • Mission preparations and disaster preparedness
  • medical accident response
  • performance under pressure/ stress handling skills
  • risk-reducing behaviour with crime, corruption and other situations
  • Communication Skills
  • Weapon Awareness
  • Gender specific risks
  • Handling, detention, kidnapping & interrogation


Every organization and every mission is different. This creates a wide variety in risks and the required skills of your staff.
Besides our prepared training days we often support organisations in specific questions that are not covered in regular security courses, or need to be treated with such confidentiality that sharing open courses with other organisations is not an option.

Don’t ask for the possibilities, tell us what you require and we are confident that we can fully be of your service.
