Hostile Environment Training Courses

Updated: Apr 15, 2023

Hostile Environment Training Courses

Over the years we have interacted with many journalists, corporate 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 in potentially hostile environments 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.

Our Hostile Environment Awareness Training is applicable to journalists, media crews, NGO staff and those doing business in potentially unstable and hazardous locations, such as entrepreneurs, oil and gas or mining personnel and corporate attorney's.
