Why Taking The HEAT Course

For those who are deploying or traveling or living in high threat environments.

Our HEAT course is designed for security professionals, business people, and all those of you who work, live, or travel to potentially dangerous and hostile environments.

As a result of today's expanding and globalized market, corporations, humanitarian workers, world travelers, security practitioners, 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. Apropos to this, you can never completely eliminate the risk, but it can be minimized and contained. Nemesis Protection has the knowledge and expertise to train and prepare individuals in survival techniques. Therefore, we have designed this training to enable you to identify threats, respond to sudden negative events, and sustain in crises.

Extensively experienced instructors deliver scenario-based learning, and 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 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 You won't sit all day in the classroom nor practice outdated and never-tested techniques.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 private and public sector organizations and private individuals. The syllabus can be tailored to your organization's needs and delivered to your location worldwide. Pricing of the bespoke training program depends on curriculum, duration, and location. Get in touch at trainingdept@nemesisprotection.com to discuss your requirements.
