Description

HEAT’s overall objective is to prepare participants to independently manage their own safety before, during and after deployment to an unfamiliar hazardous environment that has a substantial, high, or extreme safety level.

The course prepares the participants to understand and react to safety and security concerns in hostile and/or hazardous environments. Participants will be trained to recognise and avoid potential threats and respond appropriately.

Participants will be trained to recognise and mitigate potential threats and respond appropriately to various safety incidents. During the HEAT course participants will learn techniques on how to take control of chaos through classroom sessions, practical exercises and live scenarios.
