LGBTQ+ Personal Security

Members of LGBTQ+ communities and organisations face increased risk no matter where in the world they work. The LBGTQ+ Personal Security course is for people who identify as LGBTQ+ or who work for LGBTQ+ organisations, and provides tools and training to enhance the safety and security processes that LGBTQ+ people and organisations already have in place to protect themselves.
Available in multiple languages, the LGBTQ+ Personal Security course is filled with learner engagements like quizzes, scenarios, activities and a range of media.

I have a very poor internet connection. Can I still take the course?
Yes! Using our iOS and Android apps, participants can download the course modules when they have access to internet, complete it offline and their progress will automatically sync when they reconnect to the internet.
What do you mean by e-Learning?
E-Learning is a specific type of online learning where participants are able to engage with the course through quizzes, activities, scenarios, and a range of media. E-learning is different from remote training (such as through Skype or Zoom) and online videos or slides.
Why LGBTQ+ personal security e-Learning?
LGBTQ+ individuals and organisations are more likely to experience increased risk as a result of sexual and gender identity criminalisation, a lack of legal protections, hate crime, greater discrimination, harassment, violence and insufficient access to medical care. Organisations have a responsibility to understand the risks their LGBTQ+ staff experience and put measures in place to ensure that everyone can work safely. This course contributes to equitable security by helping LGBTQ+ people, managers and coworkers better recognise these risks and build safe working environments.
How long do I have to complete the course?
We realise that different people learn at different speeds and each of us will have different circumstances which influence how quickly we can complete the course. We encourage everyone to the course within a month. However, each course purchased will remain on Safer Edge Learn for a year. 
Our organisation would like to enrol a large number of staff. How do we do that? 
If your organisation has 5 or more people you wish to register for this course, we can easily register them in bulk. We offer discounts for all groups over 5. Contact Safer Edge directly at to register or learn more. 
Can different staff in the same organisation take different types of online LGBTQ+ courses? 
Absolutely! We offer 2 types of online LGBTQ+ Personal Security courses (online and blended) to offer organisations more options for training more staff who need it. The type of course chosen will depend on your budget, location and availability but you have assurance that all staff are reaching the same learning objectives.
