While HET or HEAT (hostile environment awareness training) has been traditionally provided for international journalists, oil and gas contractors, government employees or NGO/Humanitarian aid workers, it has become increasingly important that employers provide similar training to their local agents working on the ground.

However, providing such training to local staff can be prohibitively expensive and impractical.

Duty of care

The Resilience Academy HEAT course reduces the per-person cost by moving the training online. While traditional HEAT training is usually classroom-based with supporting practical exercises delivered over the course of a few days, our web solution allows learners to go at their own pace and access learning remotely. Training travel costs are completely eliminated. In addition, the practical demonstrations are filmed and available to learners for the duration of their licence.

Putting learning into practice

Our unique Near-Life™ approach allows learners to put their learning into practice via filmed, interactive learning scenarios. Using real actors on location, the interactive scenarios give learners a taste of the security situations they'll most likely encounter in the field. As in real life, learners are required to make quick decisions or the scenario will proceed and decisions will be made on their behalf.

All decisions have have consequences and Resilience Academy allows learners to make mistakes in the training scenarios so that when they're in the real world, where it counts, learners are more likely to take the best course of action.
