Hostile Environment Preparedness Training

Why Taking The HEAT Course

Take control of your personal security and overcome sudden negative events successfully!

Personal safety and security is the responsibility of each individual. Therefore, our 14-day HEAT Training Course is designed for protection specialists, business people, frequent international travelers, and all those of you operating in potentially dangerous and austere environments and being susceptible to various threats (both man-made and natural) such as kidnappings, robberies, natural hazards, and infectious diseases.

Global security and safety challenges (e.g., terrorism, piracy, organized crime, environmental threats, and human trafficking) impact on the private and public sector organizations and individuals, exposing them to considerable risks (i.e., security, safety, health, and transport risks). Although you can never completely eliminate the risk, it can be reduced to a tolerable level. Aside from security measures, proper training can help you better respond to unanticipated adverse developments and minimize the detrimental effect of an ordeal. Nemesis Protection Global LLC is a trusted provider of international crisis response services, and our personnel is particularly well qualified to train individuals in survival and evasive techniques. Thus, we have created this no-nonsense training program to enhance your personal security and safety skills—qualifying you to handle life-threatening situations and endure in hostile territory.

Our company follows training principles: train as you will operate—supporting our training doctrine to provide a realistic and common-sense training course. You won't sit all day in the classroom or practice outdated and never-tested techniques; you will go through real-life scenarios to become very perceptive about threats.

The course is open to the corporate and government sector and private individuals. The program can be customized to your organization's needs and provided as on-site training internationally. The price of the tailored training program depends on the syllabus, duration, and location.

Is there a guaranteed job placement after the course?

In short, no, there is not; it is not ethical nor professional to guarantee you a job after the course because of many reasons; for example, whether a candidate is fit for a position, it's impossible to know in advance. Besides, market demand and client preferences are constantly changing and are hard to predict; however, we are an operational company, and when an opportunity arises, we prefer our graduates above all others. We can only promise a high level of training and ongoing post-course support.
