Hostile Environment Awareness Training

A 3-day bespoke experience


Learn to keep safe in volatile environments

Are you an individual who spends time working in areas of conflict or regions where the rule of law isn't as strong as it is in a civilised society?

Perhaps you're a company which sends your staff to work in such environments.

The Atlas Hostile Environment Awareness Course more than equipped me with the relevant skills and abilities to operate in volatile environments, which is where I find myself working most often.
