The Hostile Environment Awareness Training or HEAT is to create awareness of how to respond to scenarios likely to encounter while working in a hostile or hazardous environment. Contrary to the training “Security Awareness for Humanitarian Staff” has HEAT a large “field component,” where participants practice live what was taught in the classroom.
Each course is interactive and requires a participatory approach. We combine theory with group work, audio-visual methods, exercises, and simulations.
