Security Management- tailor-made

Location: Your choice, Worldwide (tailor-made)
Residential: No

Given the insecure and often rapidly changing environments in which aid agencies work, safety and security management is not an optional extra.

This  intensive course will enable participants to identify the key requirements for managing security in complex emergencies and conflict zones by practicing essential techniques in risk management, security assessment and crisis response.The course draws on field case studies, the current humanitarian environment and the security management practices used by humanitarian bodies internationally.

By using the tailor-made service you are not limited to the full five days of the standard SM course, nor the specific topic areas covered. We would be happy to tailor the agenda to meet the needs of your organisation by adapting, adding or removing modules.
