Under the coronavirus pandemic, national staff have played an even more vital role in the sustainability of the missions of humanitarian organisations. This experience has highlighted an issue the community has suffered from for years, and that is the inequality in who we train. At PMO Excellence, they understand the challenges surrounding access to trainings.
Therefore, PMO Security Risk Management are now offering a 2-day, contextualised security awareness training on location to increase the accessibility of trainings to all levels of staff. They believe strongly in the need to make trainings more equally accessible while maintaining a high-quality standard. Therefore, they only work with certified trainers with current and relevant field experience. They use this experience to create, for your staff, recognisable and contextualised scenarios in their trainings.
