Personal security training is crucial for anyone working in an insecure or hostile environment. This course has been to designed to provide the most relevant and challenging training, specifically from an NGO perspective for NGO workers.

The course is designed to put participants under stressful circumstances, preparing them for the worst case-scenario.  Essential classroom theory is complimented with real-life simulation confronting key issues such as roadblocks, abduction, weapons, mines and crossfire.  This training will help trainees to reduce security risks and provide the tools to deal with situations that could compromise personal safety and that of colleagues.
