Safety and Security Training (HEAT)

This three-day Safety and Security HEAT (Hostile Environment Awareness Training) is designed for those who want to travel and work safely in Africa. Participants will be trained and prepared by participating in several modules. The goal of the training is to increase personal security in order to enable the participant to focus on their own objectives.


Expat Preventive is one of the major security training organisations for NGOs. We help NGOs wanting to put their employees’ safety first by giving intensive security trainings. These trainings are always given by qualified trainers experienced with travelling and working in risky areas abroad.

  • Remote medicine
  • Mines, explosives, ammunition

This three day training will be given by qualified trainers from a non-militaristic, human approach. It will combine theory and practice by including roleplays and crisis simulations in order to learn from experience, based on established learning models. Furthermore, the training will be based on repetition and security dilemmas, in order to give the participant insight in their behaviour and the consequences this behaviour might have.


The price for a 3-day HEAT Safety & Security training consisting of several modules is euro 1.200 per person for the open training session (VAT exempt). This includes lunch and excludes hotel accommodation.

For a tailor-made training, fully adjusted to customers wishes, the price will be euro 10,800. The maximum number of participants is 12.

Adding different topics or adding a fourth day is open for discussion.
