Hostile Environment Awareness Training (HEAT) is an intensive course aiming to train professionals to deal effectively with risks-associated and emergency/critical situations while deployed in hostile environments abroad.
The training is expected to align participants’ understanding of the minimum required behavioral field requirements when confronted as an individual or a team member staff of an international field operation whatever his/her professional background could be.
The course is designed to:
– improve participants’ knowledge about multiple threats present in hostile field environments and to learn how to deal with them in an effective manner;
– rehearse and practice safety and security procedures accordingly with the specific threat;
– trigger individual skill dealing with different stressful situations;
– trigger group dynamics dealing with multiple stressful situations.
Time and place: 22-27 November in Tampere and Jämijärvi. The course consists of an eLearning phase as well as the residential part, both being compulsory.
Target audience: Professionals working or are aiming to work with national or international organisations (e.g. EU, UN, OSCE), international non-governmental organisations, governments, the academic or private sector who want to prepare to work in conflict areas and hostile environments.
