Training days: the 16th, 19th, 20th, 22nd & 23rd of April | 9am - 12.30pm (GMT +1)

This training was specifically designed for aid workers working in or travelling to medium/high-risk environments or remote areas in order to increase their level of awareness and preparedness and allow them to help beneficiaries while increasing their own safety. Its goal is simple: providing a set of tools for the participants to prepare effectively for the management of their personal security in their working environment.

More specifically, it is intended to provide:

  • AWARENESS of the practical realities of managing personal security abroad in the frame of aid operations.
  • KNOWLEDGE of basic tools for managing personal security abroad in the frame of aid operations.
  • SKILLS for managing personal security abroad in the frame of aid operations.

→ These 3 components are used under the acronym AKS.

To meet these objectives, the training course has four mutually reinforcing components:

  • Theoretical sessions, aimed at consolidating methods (pre-departure checklist, do's and don'ts in violent situations, etc.);
  • Practical sessions, aimed at training in basic practices (first aid, radio protocols, etc.);
  • Simulations, which aim to crystallize the use of the above-mentioned methods and practices in a tangible framework;
  • Validation and feedback sessions (debriefings and key takeaways).
