HOSTILE ENVIRONMENT AWARENESS TRAINING
“Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.” Aristotle
PROSECTRA HEAT COURSE
It is every employer’s duty to ensure that their staff is prepared and ready to face the challenges hostile environments brings with it. Prosectra will deliver a course designed for you and your unique challenges, thus mitigating one of the biggest risks; lack of preparedness.
The course will demonstrate how to reduce your risks and increase your operational effectiveness in difficult situations. The aim is to make the participants confident enough to become self-reliant in determining and mitigating risks.
These training programs are always a blend of classroom, group work, and outdoor exercises, using scenarios relevant to the environment of the client.
PROSECTRA MODULAR APPROACH
Prosectra designs HEAT training with a modular framework for in-service training (INSET). A module can be defined as a unit, chapter, topic, or segment of instruction. There are several advantages to a modular presentation. The most important one is that it allows for better evaluation and more focused revision and improvement.
Modifying a module is easier and more cost effective than revising a course or one large module. Another advantage to a modular approach is that parts of the course can be used and reused elsewhere in other courses.
Courses that are already in a modular format are ultimately more flexible and easier to convert for delivery in other formats. All of this ensures the client gets the highest quality at the lowest cost possible.
- Course duration and location to suit client needs (we come to you)
- Instructors selected for their vast knowledge and area of expertise
- Up-to-date country information for the entire world
- Instructors have lived and worked in high-risk environments
- Realistic, challenging scenarios
- E-Learning makes the workshops more effective; all are at the same level

THE PROSECTRA TRAINING PHILOSOPHY
Prosectra draws on a pool of expert trainers from large parts of the world, with real-life, hands-on security practice from some of the world’s most dangerous environments.
We feel the most important skill of a trainer is to allow the trainees to discover and understand security, rather than being told “do it this way”. We are committed to the training concepts of adult learning.
Our training uses a range of different training methods, including lectures, group work, individual reflection, role plays, simulation exercises and videos. We have a particular focus on realistic scenario exercises that are a practical learning experience and provide you with the skills to make a quick response when working in humanitarian emergencies.
Our courses are facilitated by our staff and other highly experienced international practitioners. They are a mix of former Humanitarian Security Officers, United Nations Security Officers, Law Enforcement Officers, Customs Officials, Intelligence Officers, Special Forces Operatives and Commercial Security Practitioners, with a combined working experience from more than 50 countries.
