The Basic Safety and Security Course is a HEAT training (Hostile Environment Awareness Training) equivalent and prepares you for traveling or being deployed to unsafe areas overseas.

Are you fully prepared for working and travelling in unsafe areas? Are you capable of dealing with possible life-threatening situations and will you be able to function optimally despite the circumstances? Our Basic Safety & Security Course is designed to prepare and train aid workers, researchers and other employees of NGOs and government agencies for working and travelling in unsafe areas.

This training course is based on role playing and interaction in simulations of real-life scenarios, from which you will learn and practice skills to help build self-confidence and for adopting a rational attitude. A safe learning environment is maintained at all times, and you will most likely experience a warm atmosphere and even some fun during the course. One year after completing the course, you will receive an e-learning course to refresh your knowledge and skills.
