RSM Hostile Environment Awareness Training: Level 4 and 5 Programs

Within today’s unstable and increasingly volatile world the humanitarian aid and development community faces increasing challenges as it operates in remote, dynamic and often challenging environments. The risks of crime, LGBTQIA and gender-based violence, civil disorder, the actions of hostile governments, corruption and extortion, terrorism and insurgency, the presence of mines and UXO in post-conflict environments, natural disasters, disease and poor medical infrastructures, as well as road traffic accidents all place people and the wider interests of the organization at significant risk. This makes personal safety and security awareness central to an effective duty of care program; protecting people by building knowledge and developing practical and real-world skills through highly interactive and immersive learning programs.

RSM has supported over 350 organizations prepare their staff to work safely, productively and confidently in complex, fluid and challenging environments. We provide immersive HEAT programs for organizations such as Oxfam, Care, Save the Children, ADRA and World Learning. Our training is a proven blend of theoretical and practical training, drawing on our instructors’ firsthand experience of working within more than 75 medium, high and extreme risk countries. And critically, we pride ourselves in that all of our team brings considerable sector experience to our HEAT program. Our courses allow organizations to send individuals or small groups to this critical training; and we can run large and tailored courses upon demand. We also run RE-HEAT courses for those who have previously attended a HEAT course, and all attendees get 2 years free access to our eLearning program, allowing them to continue their learning journey, while reducing the risk of knowledge and skill fade.

The Pandora Training Center:** RSM has invested $450,000 into a specifically designed NGO training facility [Pandora] so that participants enter into a truly immersive learning environment. This will be the only training center of its kind, with a tented refugee camp, villages and community centers, customs and militia checkpoints, a UN base, mine-lanes, UXO and IEDs. RSM has also invested over $100,000 in training aids, inert munitions, remnants of war and gunfire and explosive simulations.
