Contractors On
Deployed Operations

Our CONDO courses provide preparatory training for working within operational areas in support of the Ministry of Defence. The courses teach you the knowledge and skills you need to take responsibility for your own safety and security in what can sometimes be a challenging environment.

Courses are either 2-days for low-risk environments or 3-days for high-risk environments. We complement these courses with a 1-day refresher training workshop which we deliver on an annual basis.

Hostile Environments
First Aid Training (HEFAT®)

We originally designed our world-renowned HEFAT® course to protect media crews reporting events in hazardous areas. It’s now also used by global NGOs, development, oil and gas companies, and others working in low to high-risk regions. Our 3-day and 4-day HEFAT® courses help staff become aware of the personal safety and medical risks that may arise while working in challenging environments and how to mitigate them.

Most participants choose the 4-day course, which is accredited and integrates all elements covered in the preceding 3 days into a final scenario day. This course also includes training on issues related to civil disturbance. Additionally, we offer a refresher HEFAT® course, which we recommend attending after 3 years.

Travel Safety Awareness Course (TSAC)

We designed our Travel Safety Awareness Courses with the everyday traveller in mind: business travellers, gap year students, or the more adventurous off-route tourists. You’ll learn from experienced instructors who’ve spent many years working and travelling in countries well off the beaten track. This course teaches you how to plan and execute your journey safely, equipping you with the knowledge and skills you need to travel confidently and deal with issues such as:

• Awareness of your environment
• Selection and safety of accommodation
• Documentation & Visa requirements
• Cyber awareness
• Conflict management
• Street crime
• Vehicle use and public transport
• Cultural awareness
• Localised medical issues

Evasive And Defensive
Driving (EDD)

Our EDD course helps students develop a wide range of advanced driving skills in a fun learning environment and is delivered safely by highly experienced former police and military instructors.

In fast-moving, challenging scenarios, we teach our students how to recognise and respond to the risk or threat and provide tactical skills and techniques to help them mitigate a potential attack, ambush, or hijack situation.

Our EDD course is delivered on a disused airfield location, allowing for hostile scenarios to be practised while ensuring the highest of safety standards.

Security Chauffeur
Driving Course

Having a well-trained security chauffeur is the best first line of defence. Not only will your chauffeur become a more responsive driver, but they’ll also learn personal security awareness, travel awareness, counter-surveillance, and first aid skills – all tailored to the client’s needs and risks.

After successful completion of the security chauffeur course, delegates will receive our recognised security chauffeur certificate. We can also provide First aid training and certificates should the chauffeur not be already trained in these vital skills.

Our security chauffeur driving course is ideally held at the client’s location and in the client’s vehicles. This allows our instructors to assess the working environment and the delegates to ‘get to know their work vehicles’ better.

Defensive Driving & Road Safety Awareness (DDRSA®)

The Defensive Driving and Road Safety Awareness course (DDRSA®) gives you and your company confidence in your driving ability and achieves duty of care compliance.

The course is based around current legislation and motoring body standards: In full name Institute of Advanced Motoring (IAM) and Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).

In addition, this course will help to ensure you meet corporate legal responsibilities and can incorporate a RoSPA driving assessment (the highest UK driving accreditation). Completion of this award may attract insurance benefits.
