Hostile environments training for the NGO sector is aimed at providing skills and knowledge to help NGO workers prepare for and function within potentially hostile environments.
Lazarus Training has preset designed hostile environments training courses or can produce bespoke training covering hostile environments and/or remote first aid. We can tailor the training to reflect both high risk and medium risk environments.
Our training team has recent experience on the ground in Afghanistan, Pakistan, West Africa, Egypt, Lebanon, Turkey/Syria border, East Africa and Thailand. We don’t just teach this stuff, or rely upon “old” stories from our army days, we continue to deploy, with staff in Afghanistan in November and South Africa in December.
At Lazarus Training we pride ourselves on listening to the client and working with them to cover their specific needs, so all group course bookings are treated as bespoke events. Course content is varied to meet the needs of each client group but would typically cover:
Planning before the trip
Selection of kit and equipment
Dealing with people, conflict and aggression
Weapon and explosive awareness [please note this isn’t training you to use weapons]
Explosive Remnants of War & Mines
Vehicle and driver safety
Hostile environments first aid training
Post traumatic stress
Hostile environment training for NGO sector workers and colleagues
Our training reflects our #trainforreal ethos with all training being highly practical and interactive. All our training team has experience both in working in hostile or remote environments and in delivering training for people traveling or working within a hostile environment.
