It’s time to re-think Hostile Environment Awareness Training
Traditionally, Hostile Environment Awareness Training was mostly provided to international journalists, oil and gas contractors, government employees or INGO/Humanitarian aid workers.
In today’s unstable climate, it has become increasingly important that employers provide similar training to all staff travelling into high-risk locations.
The Prosectra HEAT Online Course is designed for participants from a wide range of backgrounds and occupations.
Participants will be trained to recognize and mitigate potential threats and respond appropriately to safety and security incidents.
Security professionals agree that pre-trip training helps staff members live and work safely in most locations around the globe.
The Prosectra HEAT Online Course combines audio / video instruction, video simulations, interactive scenarios and quizzes across 13 modules to help raise awareness of security and safety issues for those working in challenging environments.
Specific Modules for High-risk Environments
- Introduction to First Aid
- First Aid Emergencies
- First Aid in Conflict Zones
- Cultural Awareness
- Operations Security (OPSEC)
- Radio Communications
- Defusing Anger & Hostility
- Surviving Crowds, Mobs & Riots
- Mines & UXOs
- Weapons Awareness
- Driving in High-Risk Environments
- Surviving an Active Shooter
- Hostage Survival
- Final Test
Fully Accredited to International Standards
Highfield International, the international branch of Highfield Qualifications, a top 5 UK awarding organisation, accredits Prosectra training courses using the Ofqual’s Regulated Qualification Framework (RQF) as a reference. Learners successfully achieving a Highfield accredited qualification will be awarded with a Highfield certificate of achievement (Level 2 Hostile Environment Awareness Training Online), to confirm their new skills and knowledge.
Increasing Your Staff Safety & Security
For too long, traditional HEAT courses have been out-of-step with the humanitarian and development sector and not reflective of our values. We believe that our course provides organizations with a tremendous opportunity to take steps toward equitable security while continuing to fulfil their duty of care.
