Hostile Environment Awareness Training (HEAT) - Australia
Humanitarian workers and professionals are increasingly exposed to challenging, insecure, remote or hostile environments due to lawlessness, political instability and armed conflict. It is essential they are adequately prepared for any dangers they may encounter.
RedR Australia's internationally recognised Hostile Environment Awareness Training (HEAT) prepares individuals to work in crisis zones or a range of hostile situations. This rigorous classroom and simulation training will enhance your knowledge of personal security so you are prepared to face difficult security situations.
The training course integrates Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC) training delivered by our partners Real Response, giving you the skills and knowledge to operate in hostile environments around the world.
Real Response delivers a combination of theory and practical based emergency medical training, teaching you the skills to manage ballistic, penetrating and blast trauma. TECC skills learnt on the training course include commercial and improvised tourniquets and haemorrhage control, airway management of an unconscious casualty and an array of improvised techniques teaching students how to save and preserve life with limited resources.
Each participant will receive a TECC Level 1 Certificate issued through Real Response. The course content is recognised through the Committee for Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (C-TECC).Who is this course for?
