3 Day HASP Training Course
Our most popular package is our 3 Day Hostile Environment Training Course, which consists of a day on personal security training, followed by a day of trauma first aid training. The course culminates in a scenario day at our training ground in Surrey where delegates put into practice what they’ve learned. Clients can either book a course exclusively for their teams or ask about an existing course that we are running for other clients, this is the ideal solution if you only have one or two staff members that require training.
Day 1: Hostile Environment
Attendees will learn new skills (or add to their existing knowledge and experiences) that will enable the team to adopt a safety culture. Topics covered include:-
essential tools for doing their research
personal security in a variety of different situations
common threats and what to do if they occur
how to travel safely by various means of transport
how to use an interpreter
the effects of weapons and explosives
a host of other useful techniques that we have learned along the way for staying safe and effective whilst undertaking your work
The modular syllabus is flexible, and we are happy to build a course that suits your needs.
Day 2: First Aid Training
From the outset we emphasise the importance of not becoming a casualty yourself, starting with the “SAFE Approach” and on to performing Basic Life Support. This exciting day will enable your team members to deal with a variety of medical emergencies until help arrives. Subjects covered include:-
the first lifesaving steps upon initial discovery of a casualty
checking for further injuries
how to prioritise casualties
maintaining an airway
stabilising a casualty as well as preventing their condition from worsening
If you or your team are deploying to a specific area, we can prepare a brief on local hazards to be aware of. Delegates can qualify for the Emergency First Aid Certificate after successfully completing the scenario day.
Day 3: Scenario Day
The team will be picked up by a fixer/driver in character and taken to a village to carry out a task that we have agreed with you. Throughout the day the delegates will be confronted by various situations that they will have to deal with including:-
dealing with permissive Police check points
a bandit check point
robbery at gun-point
several casualty situations
a brief detention scenario.
The whole course is concluded with a comprehensive debrief.
