What is HEAT Training?
HEAT (Hostile Environment Awareness Training) is a form of stress exposure training designed to equip individuals with the skills to work in dangerous places as safely as possible.
Our HEAT programme is called SAFA (Security Awareness and First Aid) training.
HEAT programmes require a degree of ‘simulation,’ placing participants in a position of stress to test what they have learned in the classroom. We believe that an immersive learning experience is crucial to HEAT, and for this reason, we do not offer an online version of SAFA.
There is no formal, internationally recognised HEAT standard. However, some sectors, notably aid and media, have developed guidelines to assist those purchasing HEAT training in finding appropriate providers and courses.
