First of all, the chances of you being kidnapped or taken hostage are quite small. If it does happen, your chances of survival are very high. The act of kidnapping is a terrifying experience, but you will come to realize that you possess more personal resources than you might think to cope with the situation. It is important to remember that you are of value to those who are holding you only if you are alive, and they want to keep you that way.


None of us expect to be taken hostage but the possibility exists. It is an age of increasing terrorism and criminal activity, both of which use hostage-taking as a key tool for gaining recognition and influencing others. No country is totally safe from a terrorist attack.


For these reasons, it is important to be acquainted with many aspects of hostage situations. Knowing proven strategies for responding to being taken hostage can increase your chances of survival and enhance your well-being both during captivity and after release.


The training will cover the different stages of a kidnapping, as well as common psychological reactions and survival mechanisms. Our trainers are former United Nations Hostage Negotiators and the training content has been drawn from academic research, interviews with former hostages and real-life experiences.


This training outlines various issues related to being held hostage, and varies in length depending on how much depth and simulation is required. The course includes a 3 hour Hostage Survival pre-study eLearning course.
