Hostile Environment Awareness Training 30th July-3rd August 2018

The main aim of this course is to prepare humanitarian workers operating in potentially dangerous environment. They say “a dead first aider cannot save lives” and the same is true of a humanitarian worker. That said humanitarian aid continues to be provided in an environment of uncertain security due to the nature of conflict.

The five day course is held at a location with access to remote terrain allowing for realistic simulation of hostile environment. The course applies a good balance of classroom lectures, role play and field exercises to maximize on learning. The topics covered include:
Remote First Aid Context and Situational Awareness, Threat and Hazard Identification, Risk Management, Field Communication, Conflict Management, Hostage Survival Techniques, Safety on the move, GBV and Stress Management.
The gem of this course is a full day controlled field simulation exercise that put participants under stressful situations that involve gunfire, explosives, and hostile crowds among others.

The course is open to all humanitarians who work in hostile environment or whose work may require travel to remote areas and those with uncertain security.
