Hostile Environment Training Services

Over the years we have interacted with many journalists and NGO personnel who routinely work in hazardous and hostile environments, Over 1100 journalists alone have been killed since 1992 and a lot others assaulted, wounded, kidnapped and imprisoned. We have many years of international travel, operational experience and are aware of the problems that can occur; not only the issues of terrorism but the threats from medical emergencies, petty crime, false arrest and natural disasters etc.

Due to our experience we are able to understand the problems that can occur and formulate contingencies to avoid or deal with the potential problems. We have a network of contacts and instructors who have operated throughout Latin America, Europe, Africa and MENA including Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Somalia and Nigeria.
