This programme is designed specifically for individuals whose work takes them to challenging, remote or hostile regions, where getting the job done can sometimes be a risky business. Kidnap, assault or natural disaster are very real dangers – and medical facilities can be few and far between.
You will be equipped to proactively assess, recognise and avoid risks as far as possible. And, should the worst happen, you’ll be ready to respond, maximising the opportunity of a positive outcome.
Participants leave feeling energised and empowered, ready to operate outside their normal comfort zones.
What Do You Need To Know?
As intelligent and well-travelled individuals, you and your team already grasp the importance of context awareness and cultural sensitivity. But do you have a systematic approach to gathering information for each new journey? Do you know what you need to know, what you can safely ignore, and where to find the details you need? On this course you’ll learn how to make your pre-travel research efficient and effective.
Pack Your Equipment With Confidence
There’s more to remember than a toothbrush and sun-tan lotion! When travelling to challenging places, having the correct kit can be a matter of life and death. We’ll make sure you understand what you really need and where to obtain essential supplies. And you’ll discover why a small tube if super glue is part of your essential travel kit.
Working With Risk In The Field
Each new situation is unique. But the reality is that general principles can be applied to assessing, anticipating and mitigating risk. In this course you’ll be introduced to the Safer Edge Security Compass, and learn how to use it to keep your safety on track.
