Arrival and Departure:
We request you to arrive between 3:00pm and 5:00pm on Sunday afternoon. This will allow you the time necessary to access the training site (there are a number of security checks to go through), meet other participants, take the chance to unpack, settle in and be ready for the start of the course. As the venue can be quite hard to locate, we offer organised transport to the venue from the Ibis hotel, Amman.
Location & Accommodation:
This course is residential. The training and venue and accommodation are held at King Abdullah II Special Operations Training Center Yajouz St.Socom, Amman, Jordan.
Participants are accommodated in dormitory style rooms. If you require additional accommodation prior to the course, or the day the course finishes, we recommend you book a room at the Ibis Amman Hotel.
Transport to/from the location:
We advise you not to book transportation until you have been confirmed registered and paid for the course to avoid incurring additional costs.
When booking transport please allow sufficient time to get to/from the venue. The entrance to the venue can be a little difficult to locate, so please ensure you have studied a map prior to arrival or that your taxi driver is aware of the location before departing. For some nationalities it is important to have a visa in place, or agreed, prior to travel to Jordan. Please ensure you make all the arrangements for this well in advance of the course. Please note the cancellation terms which apply even if you do not receive your visa and have to cancel.
Meals & Dietary Requirements:
All meals will be taken communally with facilitators and other participants starting with dinner on Sunday and finishing with lunch on Thursday. Coffee, tea and water will be available during breaks each day. Special dietary requirements will be accommodated, we charge a £45 fee for any dietary requirements which are not specified on the registration form.
You will be trained by field-experienced security professionals who specialise and understand working in humanitarian and development contexts. They will aim to ensure that your learning is as realistic and relevant as possible to the context and risks you will face in the work you do. The training will be highly interactive and require full participation in order for you to draw the most benefit from it.
Fees vary according to number of participants being registered and type of organisation/individual. Please contact us at to find out more information on cost.
