COURSE ADVERTISEMENT THE HOSTILE ENVIRONMENT AWARENESS TRAINING (HEAT)

Background

Currently we are facing a high number of armed conflicts all over the world. Especially Africa is battered by numerous of these conflicts, which hinder the continent on its way to peace, democracy and prosperity.
Mission environments are mostly different from the regular work environments people are accustomed to. Much as it is desirable to have peace around us, the environment within which we work is an enabler or a dream killer. Mission environments are typically not very conducive, talk about general living conditions, weather, conflict, food, language, epidemic, harassment, exploitation among others. Some of these situations is hostile and the person him/herself has to survive.

Therefore training of military, police and civilians to behave in a survival manner is the leverage for successful working in crises area in the future.
