Why Taking The HEAT Course

For those who are deploying or traveling to high threat environments.

Our 14-day HEAT Training Course is designed for protective specialists, business people, and all those of you who work/travel to potentially dangerous and hostile environments and are exposed to various threats such as kidnapping, robbery, disasters, diseases, and terrorism.

As a result of today's expanding and globalized market, corporations, humanitarian workers, world travelers, security professionals, journalists, and professionals alike are prone to considerable security risk. All threats—whether to personnel, business operations, or facilities—need to be properly assessed and mitigated; otherwise, the result could be kidnapping, hijacking, robbery, injury, illness, project failure, or even death. You can never completely eliminate the risk, but it can be minimized and contained. Nemesis Protection Global LLC is a trusted provider of international crisis response and has the knowledge and expertise to train and prepare individuals in survival techniques; therefore, we have designed this realistic training program to enable you to identify threats, respond to sudden negative events, and sustain in crises.

Extensively experienced instructors deliver scenario-based learning; they will ensure that all candidates are properly trained. Our company has adopted a training philosophy: train as you will operate—underpinning our training principles to deliver the realistic, intensive, and dynamic course for all candidates. You won't sit all day in the classroom nor practice outdated and never-tested techniques; you will go through realistic scenarios on the field most of the time to become very perceptive about threats and develop critical evading skills.

The course is available to the private and government sectors and private individuals. The syllabus can be tailored to your organization's needs and delivered for your personnel at your location worldwide; the pricing of the bespoke training program depends on curriculum, 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 or not, 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.
