We are happy to announce that the next Hostile Environment Awareness Training (HEAT) course open to individual participants will take place from 24 to 28 January 2022. The first part of the course takes place in Massa, Tuscany, while the Field Training Exercise (FTX) is carried out in Fornovo, Emilia-Romagna, at the former air force base La Carona. The team of instructors is composed of highly experienced personnel from the military sector, as well as professionals in the field of medical and psychological health. The session on weapons, mines, UXOs and IEDs is implemented by Istituto Ricerche Esplosivistiche (IRE).
HEAT is a 5-day immersive security training designed to enhance participants’ security and safety awareness and enable them to prevent and deal more effectively with risks, challenging situations and security incidents while travelling or working in hostile environments.
Developing, maintaining and updating the security awareness of personnel can enhance their readiness and preparation for deployment or travels to hostile environments. Investing in the preparation of personnel deployed abroad is a fundamental step for preventing and mitigating security incidents and for the duty of care of sending entities.
As stated in the recent ISO 31030 on Travel Risk Management, organisations should “identify training needs associated with travel safety, security and health”, and “assess and provide relevant training of travelling personnel as appropriate”.
Our HEAT training is designed for personnel travelling or working in high-risk and medium-risk countries and aligns with the ENTRi/ESDC standards as well as training specifications included in Annex E of ISO 31030.
Finally, our training sector is certified UNI EN ISO 9001:2015.
