“As an aid worker regularly visiting insecure locations for up to a few months at a time, I found this course useful and highly relevant. I really valued the opportunities to practice the skills I learnt in a supportive environment- knowing I can make safe a firearm and handle catastrophic bleeding without fainting is very reassuring! The course was comprehensive and clearly structured, with opportunities to re-cap to make sure I actually retained what I was learning. The instructors were knowledgable and sensitive- they know first-hand the way I work and the challenges I face, and it was great to hear and learn from their experience. At the end of the course I felt much more confident and well-prepared...”

"The Safer Edge scenario training was fantastic. It was highly realistic and put the team under pressure to reveal the cracks that need filling."
Media Director, ICF-GHK
"We chose Safer Edge because of their length of experience, knowledge of the countries we travel to and existing client base, but also because they are able to tailor a course to our exact requirements. The material was presented in easy-to-understand formats supported by visual aids and scenario-based role play with immediate debriefs. All the instructors were extremely knowledgable with real life experience; while the subject matter was sobering the instruction was made enjoyable and you were left with a sense of confidence to be able to deal with the unexpected."
When equipping your people with safety and security tools not all courses are created equal. Every organisation is different. Your mission, vision, values, where you work and who you work with will all impact the skills and tools your staff need. Threats vary according to region and culture demands that teaching is context specific.
Our experts will work with you to tailor courses to the needs of your organisation and we can deliver the training on the ground no matter where in the world you're working. People learn best in their own language and our teachers have experience in delivering in English, French, and Spanish as well as working with translators to ensure understanding.
