High Threat Media Safety Package

About The Course

This accredited course provides comprehensive training that fulfills the requirements of both media and government  pre-deployment training for both hostile and permissive regions.  It fulfils the requirement for employers’ duty of care to employees who are due to be deployed to challenging and hostile environments and for many worldwide grant and funding providers.

The Polaris High Threat Media Safety Package ensures that our training gives delegates the knowledge and skills needed to operate competently in hazardous environments either on their own or as part of a team. We use a variety of study methods to provide delegates with both understanding and practical skills.

The Polaris course will equip delegates with skills for a variety of hazardous environments due to climate, region and terrain, political instability or lack of stable law and order. The course aims to equip delegates with the knowledge, situational awareness and skills to make sound judgements in difficult situations.  This innovative course combines classroom based theory with relevant practical scenarios, many of which are based on real life experiences.

On completion of the course, delegates will be able to recognise and avoid threats to their safety, enabling them to operate effectively in challenging situations. Uniquely accredited this market leading course is both cost effective and situationally relevant to each attendee.
